nice weather.


By usernut


it,s been like the middle of summer here the last few days so got a fair bit done.
Decided to put red softwood chips down in the front garden border between my mini fir trees and will put some trough style containers with flowers in them instead of planting under the mulch. My container on the front lawn has verbena (obsession eye mix)and their starting to bloom already, nice wee colourfull plants.
Also mulched the square bit in the back garden that i,d made for a seating area, with the rustic red softwood as well.
started making a raised bed area with bricks in a sunny spot in front of my shed, just need to give it a couple of days to settle.
I put up a trellis at the back of the shed and made a trough with no bottom to sit on my soil. This is were my clematis and solanum will go. I was going to plant them today but I put them into bigger pots instead to let them grow a bit more first.

Starting to see a bit of colour from the verbena, carnations, ageratum and a few others which is good.
