After weeks absence I have still a lot to do in the garden. I could do lots of six on Saturdays off what I have to come but obviously I’m going to save them for the best times. Weather has been fairly okay over the last week is warmer and spent lots of time in the garden. The weekend weather her in Nottingham, UK is rain showers. Unfortunately I still have the issue with weeds I may get a bore with this but bindweed. It’s an ongoing issue. But at least there is good news because potatoes are well through the early’s that is. The main crop are doing well, too. Tomatoes are in the greenhouse and ready to plant into their permanent position. Had a morning out at a plant nursery and we all know what that means plants as far as the eye can see and so many varieties so many types so many I could buy. I was careful though. May go back, okay I will be going back. It is superb plant resource. Now…..
Okay readers, time for this weeks Six on Saturday.
1) Clematis ‘Guernsey Cream’. There’s not many flowers this year on this clematis compared year’s gone by. I suspect needs feeding and generally looking after as it does grow through part of the Winter Jasmine. The flowers are large and have the slight tinge of a green and produce perfect flowers too. I’m proud to show off this Clematis.
2) Astrantia -. This Astrantia was given to me last autumn, one of several plants in fact. It’s doing well since the onslaught of winter, wet, frosty, snowy weather. I’ve not grown this plant before. It’s going to do well and more to write about this later.
3. Narcissus, Unknown. This appeared in a container of Narcissus known as Bell Song. It’s very welcome and would like to know the variety. It’s superb cannot get over such an unusual looking Narcissus.
4. I think it’s a Phlox. This is another of my acquisitions from my friend. I don’t know exactly what this plant is. Also didn’t know at the time of planting back in the autumn there’s a Aquilegia – I think. A bonus two for one! Now the operation to separate the two!
5. Narcissus, ‘Sun Disc’. I have been waiting all spring for this one to present itself. It’s only just this week started to break into bloom. It’s only 1.5″ (4cm) across with slightly darker cup and rounded petals. A good late flowering Narcissus.
6) Acer palmatum – This is now the only acer I have, need to do something about that. This year the leaves are far finer. Again the acer will feature throughout the year as the months roll by.
