Re: How does your garden grow?

Re brambles, that is a good idea Mo. I bit the bullet yesterday and planted them out, plus several seedlings. Not sown my wild flower seeds yet. A squirrel, one of a family who live in the big trees nearby, has deposited several nut shells, which I cannot recognise in the veggie plot, so I have cove...

I shouldn't be watching this just before lunch Michael. It looks delicious.

Re: Lucas

I hope you have found the rat/s LL. Bad enough when you know there is a mouse around. I always know if I have a mouse in the airing cupboard, as I have a humane trap in there, and the stink is unbelievable for such a tiny creature. Years ago when we lived next door to a working farm, with the fold y...

Re: Edible Flowers

I had a look at the list of edible flowers, forgot to write them down though.

Re: Not a good few days

Sorry you have had such a grim time Gwen. Just getting through the days is very hard sometimes.

Just got my computer back, with a too large bill, after it packed up. Last week, it was my TV!

Take care. {hug}

Re: How does your garden grow?

I am still waiting to plant three bramble plants. We have a frost almost every morning for a couple of weeks, which has damaged a few shrubs. My seeds are sprouting in the greenhouse, hollyhocks, lupins etc.

Re: How many of you have had your Covid jab?

I had my first jab on February 8th, and am waiting to hear about the second one. Different people have waited different times for it, which seems to depend on the place of vaccination, and which doctor's surgery they attend. My oldest son and I had no bad effects post jab, but my two younger sons ha...

Re: How does your garden grow?

I sowed several sorts of seeds about ten days ago, and the lupin seedlings popped through during the week. I was amazed. Nothing else through yet.

Re: How does your garden grow?

What a beautiful few days. Today I have a Magnolia Susan beginning to flower, plus my white stellata. I have a pink stellata, but that is not out yet. Self seeded violets grow in cracks in the concrete and on the gravel, they are now flowering. Under the hedge I still have daffs and narcissi, and hy...

Re: How does your garden grow?

In sheltered areas, I have seen violets and forget me nots flowering. In my garden I already have aubretia in flower, and outdoor hyacinths showing colour. Lots of daffs and hyacinths in bloom, and to my surprise a third aconite flowering.

Re: How does your garden grow?

While Angel was pottering in the garden first thing, I tidied two Hydrangea pots up. These were cuttings which Ted took several years since, and I don't want to lose them, but they are so hungry for water in the summer. One of the pots was hiding a bramble briar, which I managed to dig up, and pot u...
