Several of the components in this vase have seeded themselves: buddleia, golden marjoram, pink mallow, and the unknown umbellifer. But my garden, this year is strangely lacking in self-sown foxgloves. I usually have masses. So I have sown some perennial ‘Snowy Mountain’, which I bought at Chelsea. Should I wait to sow the others, the biennial ones, in the Spring or get on with it now?

The red lobelia was on offer at the end of last summer and is doing well, I’ve even grown more from flowers that I picked – they rooted in the vase. They are growing next to the monbretia and the Gardener’s Gaiters in the front border and I do love the combination.

The Peace Pole was added because it was right where I have put the vase on display in the house, and with all the terrible things happening in the world, one can always do with a Peace Pole.

It has ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ written in a different language on each of the four sides. You can read more about Peace Poles by clicking on the link:
