The garden is starting to come to life at last


By donnah


went for a little walk around the garden in the cold .rain and wind. But its starting to look promising

I have put some runner beens in and peas I have put pots over them so the slugs can not get to them Once they are a bit bigger I will uncover them. Not sure if I am doing the right thing but I lost loads of young plants to the snails and slugs last year

Made my self another cold frame in it I have put Radish and lettice

I grew this from seed last year It is called fire and ice lettice. I kept it in the cold frame all winter. It tastes great in salads

This is the Angelica plant in the herb garden It has started to come to life again It gets very big in the summer time and it has a lovely leaf on it I like the look of it

I have put my sweet peas in hope the slugs leave them alone. They are an old fashioned scent mix

The cold frame is full and looking good and this is a rose which was in the garden when I moved in Just starting to grow It has lovely pink blooms and flowers all summer long

Your cold frame looks really good. I have only just planted up my seeds and there is no sign yet of any growth. I hope they look like yours in a couple of weeks time.

Oh I love your bamboo climbing poles you are the best thank you for so many ideas I do hope you do not mind if I use some of them. You are so cleaver and I love your plans. I have starts all over my house as I have no cold frames yet. I love your garden thanks so much for sharing with us all. Love the rain it brings our flowers in the spring I love it. But I'm ready to work the dirt. Love you.

You have been a busy bee, I like the look of the lettuce, we grow angelica, just because of the leaves, it comes back year after year.
