I tried growing pineapple lilies (above) this year after spotting them in a garden near here and thinking they looked brilliant. Alas, no flowers this year, but apparently they are hardy, so hopefully they'll pop up next year and maybe flower then.
Next year I think I shall grow more dahlias. It's the time of year when I always wonder what to do with the garden in the next season. The raised beds I have need replacing really, but I could always do something else. I don't have a vast amount of time to make huge changes, but I'd quite like to rearrange things a bit.
Neighbours over the road put in the most wonderful wild flower patch in their front garden which was really inspiring and incredibly pretty. I grew some lovely flowers for butterflies this year which were constantly buzzing with bees as well. They're past their best now, but this will give you some idea.
