Weather has been a little cooler at the end of the week and some moments of rain. It’s been an active week for me I’ve set up the seed potatoes to chit, the veg plot has been dug over, well most of it The greenhouse I’ve actually cleared mostly, just got to get up the old matting, some new on order. Then I shall be having to wash down the glass inside and out and frame and the bench. I am using Citrox which can be used for many garden tools, pots. It is completely safe to use around animals around plants causes no problems as long as you use it as directed. Many of the Tulips are now through, along with Narcissus and Muscari and Anenomes. Looking forward to them being in bloom. All this and house to sort out too, phew!
I am continuing a feature, on each Friday, view(s) of the garden I am trying to transform or develop. Please check it out.
Okay fellow gardeners, time for this weeks Six on Saturday.
1) Viola, Rhubarb and Custard. These started out as tiny plants and have really grown to the point that there’s now some blooms to break into bloom. As can be seen the rear of the foliage is purple but the face of the blooms will be something else. Soon to be seen, too.
2) Messy but better corner of the garden. Quite a lot of this small area taken back and now I can see where the brambles are coming through in hope I can get rid of them or control at least. Not a pretty site but this is another area for planting soon. Wonder if I have enough plants?
3) Hellebore, Harvington Double Speckled Lilac. New this year, and it has produced a double flower after all, even though I doubted it would be so in my last weeks posting. Never judge a …..
(The brown stem is a stick I used to prop the flower up to aide photography.
4) A narrow view. From this view you can see, left corner a structure. It is the bird feeder table been lost in the under and over growth of the years. I’ll see if it is still okay for use. right now more important matters to deal with, namely the plants and garden tidy and the greenhouse clear out, however, since this picture was taken the greenhouse has been cleared.
5) Hellebore Single White. Yes, another Hellebore. Looking good with so many flowers.
6) Olive Bush. This is looking very very healthy. unusual for me to feature this in March! I’ve not done much to it recently may need a bit of tidying up here and there. I think what happened last year, with the good weather and the fact that I had added compost, home-made compost, too. Moving the Olive to position against a brick wall instead of the shed may make for even warmer position. It has, in summer many some small white flowers often followed by olives which never ripen in time to be used. It’s a decorative shrub, remaining green all year.
