Verbena bonariensis

Artfully planted to give an eye-catching contrast with the Helianthus Lemon Queen behind.

Chrysanthemum

I have forgotten the name of this tall white chrysanthemum (flowers 3-4in across), but it is a familiar plant from my childhood, and it was good to see it again.

Dahlia Knockout

Looking back down the border, there is a fab Dahlia near the path - deep red leaves, and lovely pale yellow flowers.

Aster novae-angliae Rubinschatz

Another bright patch of colour to brighten the autumn garden.

Clematis

I love these 'orange peel' clematis. I have never got one to 'take off' here; they usually struggle for a few years and then fail.

Helianthus Lemon Queen

This is one of my favourite herbaceous perennials, bringing a lovely primrose yellow to the back of the border at this time of year, and clumping rather than spreading aggressively. I will have to look after mine a bit better; it has been neglected in recent years.

Cosmos sulphureus

Another favourite plant, this time an annual, and one I haven't grown for a number of years.

Borders

A few last views of the new borders leading up the hill, and then a swift exit into the plant centre.
