We’ve just had a mild week here in the East of England, and so the garden has woken up to throw lush green leaves skywards. It’s been the perfect time to get out there.
Looking back to the 2017 season in my garden, and highlighting my vegetable growing successes.
I’m planning my 2018 garden. Always have a plan!
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.
