Lovely weather to garden

Hi fellow gardeners we have had a beautiful weekend weather wise and I have managed to get loads done. Patios cleaned an re- sanded, pruning, digging out a couple of dead plants, scarifying lawn and giving it its first cut of the season. I've also cleaned out bird bath and water feature and filled with fresh water. I just love it!!!! I can't stop looking at my garden now!!!! Have any of you tackled some gardening jobs?

    1. Yes!  I sowed some rocket in my herb garden and broad beans and leeks in my veggie patch. The weeding got a little attention too image

    Yes, it's been beautifully sunny here too - what a treat. I lifted and divided some snowdrops, planted some of my lupins (hard work! hope they survive this early), and sowed some 'Poached Egg Plant' seeds.

    Can't beat the sense of achievement you feel when you come indoors after a productive session in the sun image

    Perishing here.  4C with added wind chill from a penetrating north easterly which is far too unfriendly.    No gardening today at all.

  • I've been in and out of the garden all week. Prepared a border and built two raised beds. Sown wild flower seeds in the border and both beds.

    Planted two Honeysuckle. One to climb up an old apple tree and one to hopefully climb all over the shed.

    Planted various in our small bog garden, and all sorts in various planters.

    Did some pruning and erected one of those small phone box sized plastic greenhouses. Tomorrow I'll be starting some bamboo seeds, sweet pea seeds, Rocket seeds and that packet of Zinnia we got in the magazine.

    I'm 49 years old and only started dabbling in gardening last year. This year I'm out the gate running with little knowledge or experience but hoping my enthusiasm will get me at least SOME results. image
