Beautiful SC, what's not to like. Has the wet weather been a benefit or detriment for you and your flowers this year?

I couldn’t possibly say if the weather has affected Scarlets flower growing  Wink .
As it’s my first year attempting to grow cut flowers I couldn’t say if it’s been a help or hindrance

This is probably my last bunch of flowers for the year.

   

I’ve been quite pleased with my first year of cutting flowers. In less than perfect condition (weather, pots & tubs and moving them ) . I’d of been even more pleased if I’d sold a few more  Blush .

For some reason my spring flowering wallflowers have started to flower again? Glad I didn't pull them out now! Big Grin

Not going to be many cut flower jars this year. Not got many flowers on the go.

This one has found a home already.  Smile . I went with the just bung them in approach. 

   

No idea what the variety this rose is. Just know it’s a cutting from a friends dad’s climbing rose. Going to say it’s an old variety because my friend is in her 70s  Cool .  It smells absolutely Devine. Only cut them because trying desperately to save a very unhappy plant    Sad

They're both lovely SC. I heartily approve of the 'bung it in and hope for the best' approach.
