It’s time to sow the French Beans and to tackle my Antirrhinum forest.
The Tulips are in bloom, the seeds are sown, and the snails are marauding.
Yes, SNAILS. Where the hell do they all keep coming from?
There might be lots of new lush green growth outside, but there’s still plenty of seeds and plants to sow and pot on indoors.
The Daylilies are blooming marvellous at the moment, but the snails continue their brazen crimewave.
Further flowers are beginning to open in the garden – this time in the shade, as well on one of the reluctant climbers.
The summer showers welcome some hungry pests into the garden, just as the Rose and the French Beans are about to put on a show.
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 the wettest drought continues with continuous heavy rain for yet another Bank Holiday, there’s still plenty of jobs to do indoors in preparation for this year’s garden.
Over the weekend I was able to dodge those April Showers to build wigwams, sow the French Beans and prick-out the Salvia seedlings.
Whilst clearing windowsills to make way for some newly sown vegetables, an unwelcome pest gets its comeuppance.
The 2011 growing season for the garden has started – on the windowsill
