Well what a gorgeous month this has been, one of the mildest I can remember.
There wasn’t a day last week the I didn’t venture into the garden for planting, pruning and sowing.
I had a consignment of plants arrive which have been put in place, Perovskia – Russian Sage which has been interplanted with Rudbekia purpurea (10 plants free with my order) I have stored some dahlias, Bishop of Llandaf and a nearly black cactus one which I can’t recall the name of. The wisteria has been pruned along with some roses and shrubs. I’ve planted about 18 Euonymus (different varieties) along a very long border and put a few others in hard to grow places that need some cover.
I have planted my first carrot seeds for my daughters pre-school garden and potted some strawberries which are for a hanging pot display, my potatoes are chitting and I’m about to sow some container tomatoes in a propagater.
I found myself sitting on our deck with my coffee this morning thinking, ‘what month is this?’
Loads of bulbs are popping their heads up and I have some Iris Reticulata blooming at the moment – happy gardening!!
