Talkback: Bank holiday gardening jobs
I will be planting "In The Green" lots of lovely tulips. narcissi, fritillaries, pink chionodoxa, etc. brought to me by my friend who has a small garden like you, Kate, but likes to ring the changes in his pots every season. he knows they will have a good home with me. Watering is a top priority as the long, hot, dry spell is threatening the health of a lot of the perennials like primroses, primulas and epimediums I have divided this spring. I am keeping an eye on the potatoes now up and the newly planted leeks and broad bean plants water wise as well. Otherwise it is war on the dandelions and bindweed and gathering great bunches of lily of the valley and anemones for the house now that my beautiful Mother's Day flowers have wilted.
