When the trees begin to dress in warm colors, it may be the end of the beans but not yet that of the flowers. When the rhythm of nature begins to slow down, varieties take over from summer flowers to continue brightening up the garden and the vegetable patch. And these fall beauties have nothing to envy their counterparts in spring or summer, as their flowering is generous or often spectacular. They are called aster, dhalia, zinnia ... These flowering champions will accompany you until the frosts with a reduced maintenance: at most, remove the wilted flowers to promote the news. This will give you time to devote yourself fully to your return to school.

J-F. Mahé The dahlia is, with the aster, the other essential flower of the late season. Again, everyone can choose from a multitude of colors, shapes and sizes. This flower of full sun is an annual that will have to be protected from the extreme cold by removing, once flowering is complete, its bulbs from the ground. You will reinstall them in the spring, when frosts are no longer to be feared.

J-F. Mahé To end the summer in style, why not invite the sun into your garden? So aptly named, the sunflower deserves to be tamed in our gardens, even the smallest! If its large dimensions can be frightening, it remains easy to integrate, either as a solitary subject along a wall, or in clumps among other tall plants. Once its last petals have wilted, it will put its remaining energy into producing delicious seeds that will delight birds… or yours!

J-F. Mahé Tobacco, an easy to remember name for a flower that deserves to be better known! These ornamental varieties are easy-to-succeed plants that require very little care. The colors are multiple, and the plant will find its place perfectly whatever the place of the garden or vegetable patch where you will install it. Another advantage of this pretty flower: its scent which gains in power once the evening sets in.

J-F. Mahé In a planter where it works wonders or in the vegetable patch where its virtues are no longer to be counted as its role in biological control works wonders, the marigold (also called "tagète") is a must. If it starts to bloom at the beginning of summer, it is from August that it shows the best of itself. At that time, the feet were greatly expanded to form real balls of flowers. At this stage, they will perfectly dress the bare feet of your tomato plants. To take advantage of their flowering until frost, regularly remove wilted flowers.

J-F. Mahé Discreet, almost erased, the gaura is nonetheless a first-rate flower in the eyes of the gardener. By fine silhouette, it brings softness and lightness to flower beds or herbaceous. It is almost when its fine white corollas sway with the wind that it is the prettiest.

J-F. Mahé In white, in pink, in purple, in yellow, in a planter, in suspension, in beds ... petunia is available in all modes! Rustic and extremely floriferous, it deserves that we go beyond its somewhat cheesy image to be rediscovered. To encourage flowering, simply remove the faded flowers by simply pulling on them!

J-F. A cheerful and cheerful mahé, the sanvitalia is a very flowering herbaceous perennial. It works wonders as a planter that it will line, thus highlighting the taller species. You can also use it in the ground to densify the base of your beds.

J-F. Mahé With zinnia, we also have to deal with a plant whose color palette is available as desired. Its height is also variable. Its good compactness and the density of its flowers make it a precious ally in the vegetable patch where it will delimit the squares of vegetables or will form, between different varieties, pretty flower separations.

J-F. Mahé So low that we would almost forget it. And yet! Nasturtium should be a must in the garden, not only for its color synonymous with good humor but also for its discretion - it lines the ground between vegetables or grows in a wall from three times nothing earth. It is also a precious ally for gardeners fond of biological control: sow it in the vegetable patch and it will attract all aphids to it, thus preserving your crops. Another argument? Its dazzling flowers are edible and will brighten up your salads. Conquered?

J-F. Mahé So worked that it seems almost artificial, gazania is an amazing plant with a highly decorative aspect. Many colors are available, each one offering a specific "make-up". It looks like nature had fun with a brush! In addition to its plastic beauty, gazania is recommended for its great resistance to drought. Plant it then forget it: it doesn't need your care to light up!
