For a little while now I’ve had the urge to do a bit of gardening – a very rare feeling so best taken advantage of!
The Golfer had been to the garden centre for me coming back with required items, so on Saturday before I put the binding on my quilt, and while the sun was shining ‘cos it’s going to be wet and cold all week, I got out in my gumboots
I noticed that the daphne is starting to get a multitude of flowers and will soon be opening out its fragrant blooms
and last year’s dahlias are now all in one pot – not sure if I need to trim back the greenery, but we’ll see how they go
I planted out some pink
and some white polyanthus – probably needed to get more but…….
We now have some fresh herbs growing; chives, basil, coriander and some self sewn parsley which I rescued
In the other overgrown, weedy herb container I found a tiny mint sprout so it’s now in its own pot……and finger crossed
Also finger crossed for these lavender cuttings that I took. The current lavender must be close to 30 years old and looking a bit worse for wear, so hoping to replace it with at least one of these
It was a very productive day, all in all. Now all this rain will see my new plants well settled.
