Roof Garden Diary: September 2015

There has been some sunshine as New Lanark Roof Garden relaxes into its mellow late summer phase.  The buddleia is in flower at last, its rich purple spikes curving over to invite bees and butterflies to land on its densely packed florets and feed.  Here, the variety of buddleia is named ‘Harlequin’ and has attractive green leaves edged with white.  The lavender is also a favourite with the bees.   Colour contrasts are created by the anemones – the purple ones against the clear white of the Japanese anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’.   Make sure you visit New Lanark Roof Garden this autumn!

Roof Garden Diary: October / November 2014

The fresh white Japanese anemones are the last of this year’s flowers in New Lanark Roof Garden.  They have looked stunning  against the backdrop of the autumn trees above the village.   Signs of the season are all around.  A robin sings from a nearby Scots Pine tree, and overhead huge skeins of geese have been seen gliding in V-shaped formation high up over New Lanark  on their way to warmer places. There’s lots to enjoy before the winter sets in!
