a walk round my "naturalistic" garden this morning. i do love my self seeders! loads of primroses and bluebells and lamiums this year and hundreds of aquilegias just budding.
Splendid day's gardening done today. Potatoes all in a last and the early ones are up. Started on the onion sets so garlic chives, spring onions and onion sets should keep even me who use onions every day in cooking happy. Chives are growing away nicely outside too now. Split up some more primula clumps. Have to find a home for three nicely grown Thalictrum aquilegifolium plants which I must have decided would be safer in pots over winter. Good job I labelled them. They do look like aquilegia leaves! A good week of gardening weather like this will be splendid. My woodland walk is gorgeous with epimediums in full flower and bluebells just opening. I have a warbler who greets me as I walk there.
Even the tiny alpine tulips are out today. never had such a wonderful show from tulips as this year.
One pot of tulips was so dry i left it in the waterbutt overnight. we had 19 degrees yesterday and many hours of sunshine. It is a beautiful day again today and the flowers are so bright the garden looks like it is studded with jewels.
Worked in the garden till i could do no more so took some pics.
Superb gardening weather. I found two large pots so two of my new magnolias have been potted up while the third is sitting in the rain butt having a long drink while I scour the pots for one big enough. i only paid £5 each for them from T& M so never expected them to be so big! I will plant them out in the garden in the autumn if they take off in their huge pots. Last of the potatoes now planted so next week I will have an onslought on the onion sets and shallots. I have to get my contribution to the Botanic garden Easter Sale ready for Wednesday too this week. It is lovely to have such good weather when you are so busy. Must find time to take some pics my garden is so lovely.
Brilliant sunshine and my plants are loving it.
Good morning everyone. It is brilliant sunshine in Bristol so will not be long before i am out in the garden among the jonquils and tulips. Have a great day.
Such wonderful weather for gardening. Lots of fruit blossom and I have fruit on my cherry tree and potatoes above ground. Fleece at the ready just in case. Bulbs still blowing my mind with their beauty. my friend has lovely tulips in his tiny garden.
First I had a great big whiff of perfume from my bulbs then I investigated the inside of my tulips now opening up in the brilliant sunshine we are having, then I opened the huge bag which the courier has just brought mw which is three very big magnolia bare root trees - Black Tulip, Denudata White and Yellow river by name. They are all having a big drink now before planting and I a needed one too.
