How cold was last month!!! and dry. No April showers. I really started to wonder if I’d ever get anything planted out or indeed if any of the many plants in the greenhouse would actually start to grow.
May has so far provided the rain and the warmer weather. Suddenly everything in the garden is looking lovely.
I bought a “mini orchard” I like trees and I like fruit so win win. I have an apple tree, pear tree and plum tree. So far the pear tree is doing best. Here it is in my little fruit orchard LOL!
The greenhouse on the left of the photo is full of strawberries – which have fruit on them! tomatoes, peppers, chillies, lettuce and some flower seedlings. Everything in there has suddenly picked up.
I’ve set aside my Spring containers, leaving the tulips to die back. Daffodils, Crocuses, Muscari are now in my border so they can flower there next Spring. Once they’ve died back the fuchsias will be out and I’ve planted Rudbekias, Sunflowers and some Cosmos too.
I made a Summer container with some of them, no idea how it will turn out!
My little “Veg Patch” is doing well too. Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Spring Onions and Broad Beans.
Finally one of the Dahlias grown from seed last year has started to grow back. Hopefully the other will follow suit.
