Gigha October.php

A walk in the gardens October 2006




There was mixed weather again this month. The day I went for my walk was lovely and sunny and fairly warm, but towards the end of the month we had more gales that brought down a lot of the leaves from the trees.

There are many different species of Sorbus in the garden and they are now displaying autumn colour both in their leaves and in the different colours of their berries. Fairly close to each other I found Sorbus hupehensis with pinkish-white fruits Sorbus hupehensis and Sorbus sargentinia with scarlet fruits.

Along the back road colour was supplied by Euonymus hamiltonianus with its leaves turning colour and its pink four-lobed fruits. Close to it was a Eucryphia moorei. Its white flowers were covered with bees and red admiral butterflies! Eucryphia moorei Right at the very end of the back road some Rhododendrons were flowering. One, which I was unable to identify, had waxy yellow flowers and the other was Rhododendron Trewithan Orange. Rhododendron Trewithan Orange

In the walled garden the Schizostylus, both pink and red, continue to bloom and they are joined this month by Colchicum Waterlily and Nerine bowdenii.

This Month a new head gardener arrived at Achamore Gardens . We welcome Micky Little and his family to Gigha and wish them every happiness here.
