Cause for celebration

Herbs in autumn

Some herbs such as mint and parsley will survive throughout the winter but the leaves are not really any good for cooking or other uses, so it's a good idea to break off sections from healthy plants and put them into a pot for growing through the winter indoors or in a greenhouse.

Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone

Plant of the Week: Japanese anemone

Bring your late summer garden to life with generous drifts of Japanese anemones – the ultimate in low-maintenance, high return perennial. Flowers begin opening from late July and carry on well into winter: if you don't dead-head the seed-heads become little greeny-yellow bobbles dancing above the winter border on long, wiry stems.

There are two kinds to look out for: first into flower is Anemone hupehensis, including bicoloured 'Hadspen Abundance' and deepest pink 'Prinz Heinrich'; later they're joined by A. x hybrida varieties such as pure white 'Honorine Jobert' and rose-pink 'September Charm'. Plant as many as you can: it's one of the best perennials you can grow.
