I am suppose to be working this morning but could not resist a little photography in my garden. Aster × frikartii ‘Mönch’ is looking amazing and will continue until the first frosts. Greencube have also planted this in a front garden in Oxted, Surrey this year and I'm hoping my clients are enjoying it as much as I am this morning. One of my lecturers at Hadlow College, Brian, always raved about this plant and I understand why having watched it develop in my own garden over the last couple of years.
I have planted it at the foot of a bold swathe of Miscanthus, which is equally as gorgeous.
