List of which flowering plants are in flower in my garden on a week by week basis

List of which flowering plants are in flower in my garden on a week by week basis

Sorry this is only just readable.I tried to type it directly into GoY but couldn't get the formatting right. To see this in a more readable size click the link below

Each column shows a month and each letter or gap shows whether the plant is flowering or not in the weeks of that month. The Y's mean in flower that week and the N's or spaces mean not in flower . The number at the end of each column represents the total weeks in flower.

If you want the longest flowering period pick penstemmon,tradescantia and hardy fuchsias all of which have been in flower since early June and will remain in flower until the first hard frosts.

I agree, very good to have as a record of flowering times. I have never been successful with Coreopsis, even one bought at Chelsea failed to thrive ! : o (((

You are so organised AM .... A good idea but I don't think I could keep it up for long . ;o)

Hope you don't mind but I am going to adopt your Y and N system to improve on my own system. As Amy says you are so organised but I have to confess that like her I probably won't be able to keep it up.
