It takes me an hour to mow the lawn, it is a bit different... 🙂
Nice, looks idyllic
It is that, downside is that the most exciting thing I've done all weekend was go to our local home/garden megastore with the dog...
I'm so fucking bored...
Looks ace, Jose!
Had some work done, then did the planting myself - with an overhelpful 6 year old!
From a grim foxes litter tray to this :)
Beforehand and whisky barrel preparation - had to remove the bands to pop one end out.
Akebia - Chocolate Vine in the climber (with a hellebore).
That's lovely. Is the hedging dogwoods? Take a photo in a year, 18 months, it will look totally different.
It is red dogwood - Cornus Sibirica, am learning all the latin now!
The tree is a young Rhus Typhina.
Are people with blueberries covering them in fleece/similar at the moment with the mildly frosty mornings?
I'm covering them in gin, try to keep it p.m. though.
Nah. No flowers in mine just some leaf burst.
The 7 Lidl lavender plants that I put down my front path last summer have started flowering. Bit early I'd have thought but nice nonetheless!
I think French Lavenders often flower quite early?
Oh, yes, just had a quick Google and it looks like they may actually flower a few times! I'm hoping for a wonderful smell when I come home in a sunny day.
Got my new hydrangeas in too.
Hydrangea Macrophylia Blue Wave and Hydrangea Macrophylia Taube.
has anyone planted out vegies yet? i am running out of sacrificial cucumber/tomato...
Sugar snap peas, sweet peas, mange tout, cabbages all out. Toms, cucumber, peppers, chillis, all that sort of thing etc all still indoors :)
Spinach, peas, lettuce, kohl rabi etc down in modules and put out under fleece a couple weeks back.
Peas, beans, radish, carrots and beetroot are all in the ground.. we'll see if it's too early
Our (probably too early) beets failed, have a back up plan for more. These, radish, broadbeans all being prep'd for bank holiday planting... but always 'cast ne'r a clout 'til May is out' rule of thumb for maximum confidence (global-warming not adjusted for.) Chard also in fyi. Rhubarb already sprouting :) as are horseradish.
Today I managed to get the polytunnel finished. Still some tidying to do and an irrigation system to sort out, but I have lots of seedlings ready to go in. Never had anything like this, am excite.
A garden that size needs a pig.
Don’t disagree, but I promised i’d Get our own offspring sprung before inviting porcine ones!
Got 200 Thompson & Morgan tulip bulbs last October for £20:
