Hello again all my gardening friends and welcome to my weekly gardening blog.
I’ve had a lovely time this week on my days off and have got quite a lot done as there has been a lot of sunshine around. I’ve managed to dead head all my baskets and tubs – I have about 40 of these so it’s quite a big job. I’ve also fed all my plants in the greenhouse, done lots of weeding and cut the lawns so quite a productive time in general.
It’s amazing how quickly the garden is changing now we are getting some warmer weather and we have changed the clocks. One of my favourite spring flowering trees has got to be magnolias. I have two different varieties in my garden and they have just started to come into flower over the past couple of days and look magnificent! I love the way they burst into full flower before producing their leaves, it really allows the flowers to be prominent and proud.
Now before I forget, don’t forget to put these dates in your diary for this weekend, my gardening shows at midday this Saturday April 1st and our regular 2 hours of gardening at 11am Sunday 2nd April. These are going to be extra special shows as it’s Ideal Worlds 17th birthday, they may even be FREE P&P on all the plants so please make sure you join myself and my great friend Angela
See you very soon
