Well that was another funny week, the start of May saw in a couple of frosts, temperatures rising to low 20s and a morning of heavy rain followed by a sunny bright afternoon. It’s certainly been playing havoc with work and the poor plants, seen a few plants with singled tops, mainly clematis and Macleya. Let’s hope that was the last of the frosts for this summer, these late frosts do cause a lot of damage don’t they. It’s also been my birthday this week, some how I have reached 45, but I managed to break one of my all time rules of not working on my birthday, still it was a sunny day and I did do a little bit of planting! Hoping to make up for that in a few weeks time by enjoying a trip to a lovely garden!
Anyway onto this six, and for a change I managed to do a little bit of work in my own garden this week and so some of the six will cover this fun work
I got these great pots last week when I went to provender Nurseries, just for my bay trees, this week I managed to get them planted up with John Innes no3 compost this week and will leave them for a few weeks before trimming up and shaping
Ahh wanted to grow blueberries for ages, brought some this winter and now they are flowering, can’t wait for the fruit to form, won’t last long though sadly as I suspect the kids will strip them bare in a few hours,
Had to add this pansy just because I find it in some way, very fierce looking! I am not sure what it is but it is certainly a scared plant, it could be the intense lines leading to a almost mouth like centre, they could be whiskers as well?
I did show you a few weeks ago my front garden with the spotted laurel being removed, well it’s all out now and had the planting mix added and now some roses I brought from Peter Beales and some Geraniums added, with a couple of spaces left to fill, good job there’s a Plant heritage plant sale at longstock nursery on Monday morning!
And lastly a special plant is flowering once more in my garden, one I discovered a few years ago and named after my granddad, George Stone and now doing well in mine and my Dads garden, so lovely to have it back once more
Well that’s my six done from my garden this week, so many plants now are starting to wake up and start delighting us with their beauty. I hope you have a great weekend and check out the other six on Saturday over at the hosts site https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com
Until next week, have fun in the garden or indeed just admiring plants
