Wonderful flowers!!!
I love this vast vartiation on Iris colours!!
I was thinking of purchasing some Corydalis too, but they will be fried during summer :(

Thank you biothanasis. You are right. I am not sure the Corydalis I can grow are suitable for growing in Greece ! I think we have very different climate!

Then you must be twins! :wink:
:rollhappy::rollhappy:

Actually I have other strategies (although I think about cloning myself someday):

I don't clean the garden in fall or spring. I just remove the tall woody steems of some plants if necessary. And the foliage of peonies (although I think I will not do it next fall). Foliage is helpful for winter protection anyway.

We add compost (I should say my boyfriend help me a lot for this task). So I don't have to add fertilizer but for potted plants like Japanese Irises

I remove many dead flowers before the scatter seeds (Blue Thistle, Rubdeckia laciniata, Geranium pratense, Malva....)

When weeding, I only remove some plants (with blooms or seeds) from the beds. The other weeds are left on the beds, sometimes on a plant, on a rock, for baking in the sun.

I don't have time for staking a lot of plants... so I must be tolerant... Delphiniums were a mess again this year. Rain storms season usually begin when they begin to bloom...

We don't have serious problems with insects and disease so I don't need to spay for it... Exception: problems with deers....

Early september

Echinacea Green Eyes. Unfortunatly not very vigourous.


Euonymus hamiltonianus var nikoensis, showing its beautiful fall color earlier than usual since I moved this tall shrub last spring. I grown it from a seed.


Hemerocallis Moon Dazzle, Echninacea Green Envy, Phlox paniculata cvv


Gentiana asclepiadea. A nice species very easy to grow here.




Echinacea Leilani, Artemisia lactiflora Guizho. This coneflower is the best yellow flowered one for me. Quite vigorous and profuse bloomer.
