GARDEN MASTERCLAS­S Toby Buckland Gardener and broadcaste­r delivers his expert advice WHAT TO DO THIS MONTH A time for change Plant of the Month: Cerinthe major ‘Purpurasce­ns’ With buds the colour of heat-tinted steel, cerinthe is one of the most striking of all annual plants. It’s a fast grower that loves gravelly ground and grows in flushes right through the summer. Spring sowings bloom in June, summer sowings in autumn, while seed scattered in a sunny spot now will create a blue backdrop for the tulips in spring. Cotswold Life: September 2020 141 Š
