Mods on the job this morning.
Wum and kitchen lot gone
Disturbed night last night. OH gone to Bath for three days, he went at 5 ,
Nice picture of the bee
Chimonanthus praecox or wintersweet.
My lilies haven't started moving yet. I dug one up today, and there was no shoot at all yet.
Try and put them in a block, 3 x 4. I'm not confident so few will pollinate well. try tapping the plants when the male flowers open to disperse the pollen.
My peonies are still hiding.
Ooh yes, you should see my new double yellow hellebore........
I rotate sweet corn, onions, and courgette/pumpkins around the sunniest beds. Beans, brassicas except caulis and potatoes will cope with less sun.
I should add I use two packets and plant in a block, 7 rows of 10. The odd plant, or planted in a long line, will not pollinate well, because it is wind pollinated.
I have had sweetcorn swift, two years running. One wet, one hot. Both years it did really well. It needs the sunniest position you can give it.
