I shall be brief today as I should be packing for holiday in Devon.

Here are my Six for this week.

1. Telekia. Grown from seed last year, the plant is rather untidy in the leaf department but I do like the flowers.

2. Eryngium. Blue, nuff said.

3. Hollyhock. Tall, pink.

4. Crocosmia. Short, red.

5. Taming of the creeper. This is finally doing a good job of covering the dodgy render under the bathroom window. It does grow very vigorously though, I have to shin up a ladder 2 or 3 times a year to keep it under control.

6. Verbena bananarama

That’s all folks! Next week’s edition of #SixOnSaturday will come from the English Riviera.
