What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 25/05/2013 at 18:29

At last the sun has shown its face and I have been in the garden most of the day. Planted some sweet william and cosmos out into the garden and some pot marigold. I've potted on into larger pots my new fucshias. It is so nice to see the sun and have it little warmer. I don't want to alarm anybody but I was in the garden without my coat and hat today.

Are we really in May or have we just jumped to October. Your poor little plants nut, hope they are ok. The wind is just bitter today and I am on the south coast.

Celeriac info

I'm with welshonion, I have never got a Celeriac bigger than a tennis ball either. They are a lovely veg though. You can bake them, fry them, steam them even mash them in with your mash potato, so versatile.

Hi Nikki I have successfully grown two Lilac trees grown from cuttings, I just pulled new shoots off dipped them in rooting powder and potted them up,  I have got these in large pots. As you can see it is flowering very well and the perfume is lovely. I have had them for about 5 years and they flower like this every year.

Sentimental Tool

I still use my Dads garden spade and fork. I can always remember him using them even when I was a child. He has been gone 24 years now and I have no idea how old they are but I treasure them and miss him dreadfully.

What are the fields of yellow flowers I see everywhere now? " />

I call them sunshine fields because they always look so sunny and bright.

Gardens we have visited 2013

We visited the Keukenhof in Holland in April. It was a beautiful sight to see, so many tulips, just breathtaking, and the perfume from the Hyacinths was just unbelievable.

Hi Gail welcome to the site. I have left the greenfly to the wildlife and have found this works perfectly too, the blue tits do a brilliant job. If you have any questions about plants etc there are some very knowledgeable people on this site to help you out. I have called on their services many times. Hope you have a great time in your garden
