Suddenly everything is bursting forth! The garden is looking glorious and I can’t keep up!
Every day I go into the garden, I am in rapture, and panic as at this time it’s so hard to know what to do next, everything needs doing now… I’m frantically potting up, watering new seedlings, planting out, planning the vegetable plot and so on.
So far I’m really pleased with the gravel garden, no grass is growing through and many of the new plants are putting on growth, and my replanting in the borders has so far worked well in colour and form
The Ballerina tulips contrast splendidly against the euphorbia, forget me nots and wallflowers.
Euphorbia polychroma, coming into it’s own
The blood red leaves of the acer contrast nicely against the forget me not’s vivid blue.
I have finally replanted my strawberries from the flood blighted border to a raised bed at the back of the garden.
The veggie patch at last is catching up with spring, with broad beans, peas, carrots, beetroot, parsnips and marigolds all in and ready to grow.
So if I’m quiet on here, you know I’m quietly panicking in the garden instead!
