Week 38 and 39 (2019) Update

The Scabious continue to produce a prolific flush of flowers with the area cut back in July producing stems that are as strong as the first flush back in June.

The Bulrush lily media trial is almost ready to harvest and assess although there are not many visual differences between the treatments.

The eryngium trial is starting to flower and while there are a few marketable stems this year, as with most perennials, next year should demonstrate their true potential.

Most of the trials are now coming to an end but the Gomphrena (see left hand photo) and the Asclepias  “Apollo Orange” (see right hand photo) are still being harvested for samples and vase life trials.
