Here's a little
A friend was moving
house and offered me his Chamaerops humilis and Yucca rostrata.
Unfortunately they had to be dug up this weekend which isn't ideal
with next weeks weather..Anyway, i dug them up with as much rootball
as possible and have planted them in the garden. I added a good
amount of grit and some organic compost to the holes and covered with
some bark that I bought. Hopefully they will survive as they are nice
sized plants, over 10 years old.
On the top right
hand corner of the patio there is a nice sized Acer grisium that I
was also given. It's still in its nursery pot and I'll plant it in
spring. Just not sure where to put it yet...any ideas? I'm not sure if the borders are too small to plant it in and if it should go in the lawn somewhere..I love the paper bark maple.
I also have a
Trachycarpus fortunei, a Butia odorata and cordyline that are in
quite small pots (bottom right hand of the photo) I am trying to give
them some protection from this cold spell and will plant them once we
approach spring. I got them on sale from the palm centre last week.
some silver copse fence paint. I think it will really transform the
garden. I'm looking forward to doing this when we get a dry spell and
its a bit warmer..
(i've changed my mind on the hedge idea for now..)
Looking good there @newprojectgarden, like the design of your lawn.( you might want to invest is some long edge cutters so you can stand up when trimming round the edges....saves a lot of back ache!). You've made a super start in such a short time. Where are you going to put the washing line!?😉😅
