Here we are now in February. Brighter – well somewhat days. Lots of rain too. Though cold here in the UK, there’s some signs of Spring to come with the narcissus and tulips and crocus peering through. This, again, is what my week’s blog is all about, looking to what will be enjoyed in bloom soon for our spring. I have ordered some vegetable seeds – runner beans, carrots, radish, lettuce, spring onion, 2 type of seed potatoes along with Tomato. More from that later. It will be my first year for a while growing fruit and vegetables.
I have started a new feature of each Friday there will, I hope, view(s) of the garden I am trying to transform or develop. Check it out. Well my six are somewhat a meagre collection as not done gardening lately. It’s time for Six on Saturday.
1) Various perennials. I bought these as very young plug plants back in the autumn. I was lazy and did not label them!!! I’ll go back to the order to find out what they are. However, I am impressed with the growth – they in the greenhouse. BTW, they have been watered since this photo and so look better for it too.
2) Yes, more unknowns apart from …. Violas. I do not know the variety of the viola again TBA.
3) Winter Jasmine. This is one that was photographed on a nice sunny day this week yeah I know they don’t happen very often those sunny days. Also, I’m surprised and it’s made it through the winter having flowered its socks off in November December.
4) Narcissus, Grand Soleil. If I had planted these a little bit earlier than I did, it’s quite likely they would be flowering now but then obviously I was going to bring them indoors in the warmer place but no I’m going to leave them and hopefully will get some wonderful blooms from which I remember correctly they multiheaded variety.
5) This area to the left will be the vegetable patch! A bit of work to do here get rid of the grass and the perennial stuff that’s no longer needed. Holly will stay and the honeysuckle as long as the next door neighbours fence stands up course 🙂
6) Those plants now moved. Not far but they have been moved! 🙂
That is it for this weeks Six on Saturday. Whatever you’re doing be safe and ensure that you enjoy your gardening or what ever you do. As always our host of Six on Saturday is The Propagator.
