Late Summer Blooms

Late Summer Blooms

As the good weather extends into September, and the calendar indicates that fall is still a week or so away, many Chester gardens continue to provide good colour. Ornamental grasses are also at their best.

Although it is the yellows and oranges that predominate, with rudbeckia and ligularia showing their autumn hues, the occasional splash of red can be seen. The white blooms on a buddleia add a striking accent to the overall palette.

Adhering to this autumn mindset, Chester Garden Club’s September
meeting will feature well-known
horticulturist Niki Jabbour who will speak on ensuring that your garden has its share of autumn colour and interest. The meeting is scheduled for Monday evening, September 21st, at 7:00 pm. Location – the same as usual – in St. Stephen’s Parish Community Centre, corner of Queen and Regent streets.
