Monty's month of flowers: jobs for the July garden

By midsummer, the flower borders are a riot of colour. It’s an ideal time to take stock, deciding which areas look good and which need plants moving or adding to create the best summer displays. Flowering plants such as dahlias, sweet peas and roses will benefit from regular feeding at this time of year, while deadheading will help to keep many plants flowering longer. It’s also time to prepare for seasons to come, by sowing biennials and planting autumn-flowering bulbs.

In a Vase on Monday: White as the Driven Snow

I have been watching and admiring the white antirrhinum, A ‘Liberty Classic White’, in the cutting beds for a few weeks, not wanting to cut any stems until all our garden visitors had departed. Now that they have indeed all gone, I was at liberty to use the stems in today’s vase, where they form the mainstay of an all-white arrangement.

5 Things to Consider When Picking the Perfect Planter

You don’t need a green thumb to know that the most important things for a plant to grow well are sun and water exposure. But when you fill your home with plants and make intentional decisions about what to grow in a controlled condition, you also have to consider how that plant will survive in its fabricated environment.

Six Seasonal Stars on Saturday

The garden is full of seasonal stars at the moment, so picking out just six was not easy – but let’s start with the most asked about plant on our garden open days, Clematis texensis ‘Princess Diana’ (above). Almost every plant in the garden is labelled, something I like to see when I visit a garden myself, but very few visitors seemed to take the trouble to look, preferring to ask the gardener or the dogsbody: fortunately, Princess Diana is one variety that the dogsbody/Golfer knows! Smothered in blooms, it deserved all the attention it got, and is possibly flowering better than ever before, despite the issues with several of my other clematis. This variety was the first clematis I actually sought out after seeing it performing so spectacularly in a garden more than 20 years ago; up till then, I had only bought whatever clematis were available at my local garden centre. The current plant, however, is a replacement for the original, which suffered when moved to the clematis colonnade.

Revisiting Fieldman: Seasonal extracts and exquisite illustrations bring 1940s natural world magically to life

For the first time in decades I heard a cuckoo just the other day, its pealing “Wuck-Koo” ringing out so loudly nearby that I felt a quick, sharp jolt of joy at being so closely in its presence. Once a common sound, the distinctive call of this fleeting seasonal migrant from tropical Africa is traditionally believed to signal the arrival of spring. But as is true of so many other once-common species of birds, its numbers, which are down by an estimated 27 per cent since the early 1970s, have been in slow but steady decline for decades.

The 12 Best Tomato Companion Plants For Your Best Crop Ever

Companion planting is the centuries-old practice of pairing plants in the garden that benefit one another. Our gardens function as interconnected communities, with different plants providing unique services. Some plants attract beneficial insects, others ward off pests, while some enhance soil health. Anyone who’s grown tomatoes knows they are heavy feeders, and often plagued by foliar diseases and a diversity of insect pests. They certainly stand to benefit from tomato companion plants that promote healthier plants and increased yields.

Is there such a thing as a low-maintenance and attractive garden?

The term ‘low-maintenance gardening’ has been kicking about since the 1970s. But people’s perception of what that means varies wildly. To some it’s concrete slabs and gravel with not a green leaf in sight. To others it’s lawn and shrubs or geotextile cloaked with gravel and topped with pots. In essence it’s about having an outdoor space that requires minimal input while looking consistently smart. But the question really is: is there such a thing as a low-maintenance garden that is also attractive?

Alan Titchmarsh shares his biggest gardening mishaps

Among my favourite gardening quotations is one from the creator of the Larkin family in The Darling Buds of May, H.E. Bates. Mr Bates was a keen gardener and realised all too well the frustrations of our craft as well as the pleasures. ‘Gardening’, he said, ‘is like love. It doesn’t always yield to analysis.’ Times without number I have had cause to believe his wise words. I mean, sometimes – in the words of another sage, Sir Patrick Moore – ‘We just don’t know’. There; having got that off my chest there is little likelihood that I will ever be confused with the Oracle at Delphi. On the other hand, perhaps I can offer a crumb or two of comfort by sharing with you some of the mishaps that I have encountered during my years on the soil. They’ll make you smile if nothing else.

Three-cornered leek (Allium triquetrum) - gardenersworld.com - Britain

Three-cornered leek (Allium triquetrum)

Native to the Western Mediterranean, three-cornered leek is a bulbous perennial with white spring flowers. It’s also known as stinking onion, for reasons which become obvious when close by. In other countries, it’s known as onion grass or onion weed. Part of the allium family, it’s related to edible and ornamental onions as well as cultivated and wild garlic. However, since its introduction to the UK in the mid-18th century, three-corned leek has spread to become an undesirable invasive plant, forming dense colonies and crowding out native plants. It’s an offence to plant or dispose of it in the wild.

Angel Collins' perfect planting scheme for summer borders | House & Garden

For Angel Collins, putting together a palette of plants either for herself or a client is one of the most pleasurable parts of designing a garden. ‘Making that initial list and then finally laying them out in the garden, seeing how they all work together, is something that I will never tire of,’ she says. ‘I make mood boards for my clients and provide them with a list. But I never draw out a rigid plan, as I prefer to set the plants out by eye and play around with the balance.’

The plants that stole the show at this year's Chelsea Flower Show | House & Garden

This year Chelsea Flower Show was full of interesting trees and shrubs with lots of dreamy woodland-edge planting in dappled light underneath leafy canopies. Native trees such as hawthorns, hazels and silver birch were the favoured choices in many of the show gardens, with a mixture of native and non-native ornamental plants selected for resilience and sustainability. In Ula Maria’s Forest Bathing Garden, white foxgloves, cow parsley and other umbellifers like Baltic parsley (Cenolophium denudatum) and valerian (Valeriana officinalis) were mixed with the simple shade-loving grass Melica altissima ‘Alba’ while Tom Stuart-Smith showcased intricate tapestries of interesting foliage in different shapes and textures. In other gardens, orange was a popular colour in many shades, from deep rusty orange irises to pale orange geums, especially in Ann Marie-Powell’s exuberant Octavia Hill Garden. As always, the Grand Pavilion is the ideal place to discover new and interesting plants showcased by some of the country’s leading nurseries.

The best summer honeysuckles for scent | House & Garden

Honeysuckle (Lonicera periclymenum) is one of the easiest plants to find in the wild, since its strong, sweet scent hangs on the air. Native to most of Europe, it is a common sight and smell in our woodlands and hedgerows in summer, twining itself around trees and scrub and luring a wide variety of wildlife. In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Oberon describes Titania's sleeping place as 'quite overcanopied with luscious woodbine'. It is certainly a plant fit for a queen, since each of the flowerheads resembles a crown of cream and gold, formed of a ring of tubular blooms.

The "Flowers" section on our website diygarden.cc provides extensive information on various types of flowers, their cultivation, care, and use in gardening and landscape design.

Flowers are the reproductive structures of flowering plants (angiosperms). They are typically colorful and fragrant, serving to attract pollinators like insects, birds, and bats. They contain the reproductive organs of the plant, including the male parts called stamens, which produce pollen, and the female parts called pistils, which contain the ovary and receive pollen for fertilization.

Flowers come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, with each species having its own unique characteristics. They play a crucial role in plant reproduction by facilitating pollination, which is the transfer of pollen from the stamen to the pistil. After pollination, the ovary of the flower develops into a fruit containing seeds, ensuring the continuation of the plant species. In addition to their reproductive function, flowers have significant cultural and aesthetic value.

They are often used in bouquets, decorations, and landscaping, and are associated with various symbolic meanings in different cultures. Many people also enjoy gardening and cultivating flowers for their beauty and therapeutic benefits.
