Flower Garden (Week 28).

This week from the flower garden I’m going to show you the Verbena bonariensis that we have growing. It’s not in a border as such and is growing from a paved area along with some Verbascums, I also have a few plants in the veg garden to attract the bees and butterflies. This is an easy plant to grow provided you can get it to over winter as it’s only really half hardy. The safe bet is to take off a few seeds and bring on for the following year either in a frost free place. It likes to grow in full sun in a lightly moist to dry location.
