Hello again my gardening friends,
To be honest I haven’t done a lot in the garden since last time I posted, unfortunately on the few sunny days we have had I have either been at work or had already made plans to do other things so it hasn’t allowed me to do much outdoors.
My mum came to see me and stayed for a couple of days over last week and we had planned to do quite a lot of gardening but it really was too cold for her so we went out shopping for the day instead and then had a lovely evening in our village pub – the red wine there definitely warmed her up!
However, despite neglecting the garden a little over the past 10 days or so it really has started to come to life again. There are hundreds of narcissus bulbs now in flower which give the garden a true feeling of spring and my red crimson peach tree which featured on the gardening show over the weekend is now proudly coming out in the most beautiful blossom so hopefully it will bare loads of fruit. I really do love this time of year and it’s great to say goodbye to the winter and plan for the summer months and summer bedding.
I am actually in the process of choosing a new greenhouse as I want something quite big to work in with enough room to grow on hundreds of summer plug plants so I am looking forward to getting that sorted this week. I have also checked the weather for the next seven days and it looks pretty good so hopefully I will get a lot more done.
Don’t forget to tune in on Sunday from 11am to see me in our Gardening destination show for some fantastic deals on our Plant of the Month English Lavender Munstead 12x Jumbo Plugs and our Everbearer Strawberry Sweet Summer 20x Runners plus a mix of plant collections including Germanias!
Thanks again for reading
All the best,
Ps next time I post the clocks with have changed and the light nights will have begun- almost time to get the BBQ out!
