    4 Flowers to find for August!

    - By Tristan on July 18, 2017, 0 comments

    August is a great month in the garden, with many flowers, including dahlias, sunflowers and other hot-coloured blooms at their peak. That means there's ample pickings for the house, from your borders or a dedicated cutting patch.Our latest Bunches Blog takes the opportunity to showcase 4 of the very best, and feel free to comment with any of your own! 

    Sunflowers
    Sunflowers aren't just yellow - they range in colour from deep russet to pale lemon. Some, such as 'American Giant', grow very tall and have huge flowers; others, such as 'Choco Sun' are more dwarf. Sow seeds in May.
    Alstromeria
    Alstroemeria, or Peruvian lilies, are showy perennials that look great in a sheltered, sunny border. They also make excellent, long-lasting cut flowers. The sap can be an irritant so wear gloves when cutting. 
    Zinnias
    Zinnias are colourful, easy to grow annuals that combine beautifully with other 'hot' coloured plants such as dahlias, in borders and in pots. They also do really well in a vase. 
    Tithonia
    Tithonia or Mexican sunflowers are half-hardy annuals that are sown in spring for a glorious summer show. They love a sunny, well drained spot. They are very attractive to pollinators.

    For any growers of these flowers, if you want to send in snaps of your own, we'd love to see them!
