Hi all, just after some advice on what to plant to keep my garden bright and cheery through autumn. Thanks all :-)
Dahlias, Cannas, Asters, Helenium, Echinacea, Sedum to name a few.
I would add Schizostylis, the Kaffir lily
......... and thinking ahead, don't forget September is a good month to plant Daffodils.
To add to those already mentioned - Japanese anemones & hibiscus.

Crocosmia Star of the East is later than most, flowering in September and October.

Sedum and Michaelmas Daisies are just coming into flower in my garden, Dahlias are still producing plenty of new flowers, here many roses are having their second flush of flowers so there is still plenty of colour about. I am beginning to plant bulbs as they appear in the shops or bulbs I have stored over the summer.
Suggest that yes, do plant daffodils and some other bulbs now if you want to, but not tulips - they really don't like being planted now - wait until October/November.
