Having spent a number of hours wondering how to follow on from sundewkid’s start to the blog and suffering from a major mind blank the only thing I could come up with was an introduction to myself via one of my favourite plants….. the michaelmas daisy. It has to be said this title covers a large variety of species and cultivars within the genus Aster (A. amellus, A. novi-belgii, A. novae-angliae, A. cordifolius amongst others), which is probably one of the main reasons they rank so high in my list of favourites. These wonderful flowers provide a blast of colour from August through to late October, peaking in late September, providing a wonderful late season treat for not only us but also the bees and butterflies.
