Anyone done any gardening today? Part 5



  • Started planting up our winter/spring garden today, 43rd birthday and the kids and wife bought me large selection of hellebores so in they went.

    Sowed some greater knapweed, bit early but just couldn't resist. Sorted all the seedlings and cuttings etc that were just thrown into the greenhouse and cold frame.

    Cleared some soggy material from the perennial beds, so exciting to be able to do some proper gardening !!!

    Cut back numerous bushes and reclaimed meters of garden. Also ordered garden waste bin. Hope to keep on top of it a bit better this year

    Ridiculously mild here today, felt more like early March. Did some weeding and pulled out dead leaves etc. to reveal snowdrops just poking their noses through. Pulmonarias are already starting to show much earlier than usual and the hellebore buds are covered in greenfly.
     Nice to get some fresh air.

    Sowed some Sweet Pea "Wuthering Heights" & Calendula in modules - the latter is perhaps a bit early but in my experience they are a bit slow once potted on so I thought I'd see if I could get an early display.
    Washed a few trays and pots - which is a first.
    Top dressed blueberry & acer both in containers.
    Trimmed & tied up a honeysuckle.

    Enough for one day.

    Sorted out the plants in the hanging baskets that i put in the small greenhouse last autumn. Hadn't watered them at all and they're still ok.

    It's been dry for the last few days so got out onto the lawn to plant some polyanthus that i didn't get round to plant last autumn because of the wet weather.

    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.

    Gardening books definitely count
    Done a couple of hours this afternoon, pruning , can’t put to much in garden bin as it’s only emptied once in January ie. 23rd
