Updated Monday October 8, 2018. Our counter-in-chief has been off spreading the word about the garden, but now we’re back to something like a regular schedule. We are into the autumn decline, down to 95 clematis in bloom. Recent rains have sent many clematis into seed-setting mode, but a few large-flowered hybrids have snuck back into bloom. For reasons known only to themselves, the winter flowering clematis are coming into a full flush of bloom. Perhaps they know the weather folks are right to predict a mild winter.

 ‘Allanah’ still going strong. This cultivar is always best in the autumn here. Modern Garden row 12.
