I am quite taken with these Allium christophii more so this year than any other. I have had these for probably at least 4 years and they have been OK but last Autumn I moved some Sisyrinchium into this border. They have proved to be an unexpectedly good combination so much so that I am planning to add more Allium and Sisyrinchium to this border. Also in the border which I think adds to the overall effect is golden Oregano and Trifolium. I am actually quite pleased with the display in the front garden
In the back garden the main display is from Delphinium and Geraniums. I am growing fonder and fonder of the Delphinium especially as I grew all of them from seed and it took a couple of goes before I got successful germination and then when I did another couple of goes until the seedlings survived the winter.
As with the Delphinium, I have grown all the Geraniums from seed over the last few years. Most of them have come from one packet of mixed seed so I have no idea what varieties they are but this doesn’t bother me. I would rather have a selection than lots and lots of the same ones.
There are also lupins, geums, foxgloves and roses in flower but I thought I would focus on my favourite flowers this month. However there is one flower I really can’t decide whether I like or not.
