The garden and the seed trays begin to wake up with the first flowers and the first seeds germinating. Here comes the Spring! (hopefully)
The propagator is fired up, and the sow-athon begins with Broad Beans, Sweet Peas, and Salvia.
I’m planning my 2018 garden. Always have a plan!
The Sweet Peas need some tough love in the form of ‘pinching out’, and the Tulip ‘Triumph’ flowers are about to open.
The third propagator came into action this weekend, as British Summer Time arrived and I fill another windowsill with seedlings.
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.
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.
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!
