Spring Flowers Blooming in Autumn!

Buddleia blooming in Autumn

Looks like Spring, hard to believe it's actually Fall!

In the UK the weather has been so unseasonably warm that the plants are very confused! Normally only blooming in Spring time, plants such as Rhododendrons and Strawberries are blooming for the 2nd time this year.

According to The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the unusual warm weather is causing a lot of “late” flowering. Their gardens are flowering with Azaleas, Magnolias, Apples and Raspberries, to name just a few.

At the Kew’s Wakehurst Place Gardens in Sussex, they are seeing plants like Foxglove and Cowslip blooming again. Andy Jackson, head gardener, said “It is a very unusual year, I’ve been gardening for 30 yrs and have never seen anything like this”. “We are increasingly seeing that plants are not synchronised with what the weather is doing”.

Here in Edmonton (Canada), the weather has been warmer than normal as well. My garden is still producing Lilies, Roses (not a rose hip in sight!), Clematis & even Pansies. I don’t think I’ll question why, I’ll just enjoy it. Before long they will be buried under a couple of feet of snow, not to be seen again til Spring officially arrives next year.
