getting there slowly.
well just finished a 12 night shift run and got 4 days off so hope to get lots of things done in the garden if the weather is ok.
potted some ivy cuttings that I got from work and got some other plants from work that were deemed to be not in a good enough condition for their displays, a few dead leaves removed and replanted in my shed window and they seem to be growing ok.
My “shake and rake” wildflowers in the planters are coming on a treat as is my wee blackcurrant bush.
I also repotted a couple of poor red heathers and there is new growth already.
my bulbs are having mixed results….. I realised that I had planted all my bulbs upside down, lol ( first time bulb grower ). the one,s in containers were removed but the one,s in the hanging baskets are coming on great.
I fertilised the soil as I hope to decide what’s going where and get things planted out in the next few days.
and finally my pieris… I had replanted it in a container and moved it into the front garden.. big mistake, it started to deteriorate. Don’t know if it was putting it in a container or the stronger winds at the front that was doing the damage so yesterday I lifted it and replanted it in the back garden again only this time in a sunny posistion, hope it recovers.
