  • DD Gardening: End of summer doesn’t mean end of colour!

    first_imgThis past week I was out and about visiting gardens and giving consultations on everything from choosing plants for wet gardens, renovating lawns and pruning apple trees – this week I was in Newry, Ards, Coleraine and county Donegal. One of the gardens I visited was Dunmore House in Carrigans, open as part of the Donegal Garden Trail. This historic gardens dates from the early 18th century, however much of what can be seen today within the walled garden are from the early 20th century onwards. The walled garden is typical of its period with a fine network of paths and a mix of productive and ornamental horticulture now occupying the c.2 acres. When I was visiting head gardener Andy was busy planting out Wallflowers, to add spring colour, however we were both in agreement on how much colour was still showing in the garden – plants such as Perennial Lobelia, Golden Rod, Sedums, Fuchsias and more were dazzling with their show of Autumn flowers, and there were still many varieties of Dahlia yet to start blooming – these ones colour from mid October for Andy.The soil in Dunmore benefits from centuries of cultivation, and is rich in organic matter from countless wheelbarrows of leaf mould compost added over the years by Andy, and his father before him.As gardeners it’s easy to overlook this source of fertility which literally falls into our laps each Autumn, so start a leaf mould pile in your garden this Autumn. In our own gardens its easy to look at the 7.30 sunsets and think about dark winters and snow, but there are many plants which offer great colour through Autumn, each and every year, available now from your local garden centre.One of the best tips I give to gardeners is to visit garden centres throughout the year, thus you’ll pick up plants which look great every month of the year – as opposed to visiting just in the summer and getting summer flowering plants.Dunmore House in Carrigans is open through the Donegal Garden Trail, with details found on the DonegalGardenTrail.com website.DD Gardening: End of summer doesn’t mean end of colour! was last modified: October 2nd, 2016 by Gareth AustinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
