The Courgettes are thriving but they’ve come under attack from blackfly, and the Rosemary has a beetle infestation.
I go hunting for some new Mint plants to kill off.
Last year’s Tulip bulbs are now coming into flower, and the seedlings are thriving in the propagator.
Now that we have proof that Spring is actually coming, I’ve been tidying up the garden, planning ahead, and uncovering the colourful bulbs.
Heavy rain and sunshine has led to the garden responding with poppies, Sweet Peppers begin to grow fruits, and a fresh batch of Parsley begins to germinate.
The garden has grown a lot thanks to rain and lots of sunshine – with Foxgloves and others coming into bloom… plus a surge of bees cause a problem!!
Whilst clearing windowsills to make way for some newly sown vegetables, an unwelcome pest gets its comeuppance.
After some heavy April showers, the garden has leapt forwards with lush growth and flowers, but there’s still plenty more seeds to sow… including some for next year’s garden!
Seedlings are thriving at the moment, and there are some surprise winter survivors in the garden, but also some unexpected casualties.
With spring upon us, I’ve set a load of herbs, salad crops and flowers for this summer’s garden.
A second growing kit arrives, and relieve the post-Christmas boredom with ‘Attack Of The Sprouts’ game from Eyegas.
The garden is continuing to provide as the first strawberries are picked; the second courgette is picked; and new plants arrive.
