April in Your Garden

Here on Canada's wet coast aquilegias grow wild--the orange/yellow kind. I pull some, and let the others be-I also have a few cultivated kinds that sometimes self-seed. I garden surrounded by forest, and with a view of the ocean. I am on a steep slope, with little soil, just gravelly sandy stuff, so most of my gardening is done in containers. I have extensive decks and many pots. Much of my acre is wild-ish, and it is often surprising to see what comes up. In the summer, available water is limited.

I have no lawn-just a flat area by the drive that I strim in the spring.

Wow!! Wow! This place sounds like heaven, please tell me Inkadog that your avatar is not your view from your house? . I might be just a tad bit jealous!. It sounds very tranquil, free and a happy place!  Im gardening in the outer hebrides, we are pretty wild up here, wind being our biggest challenge ( pardon me)!!!.

Hi Hezzie, living in the Outer Hebrides I generally do pretty well with veg crops, eg, onions, potatos, beetroots, carrots, spinach, and peas  are just a few of my successess. Never had any success with sweetcorn, just not enough heat I suspect!! 

 I've got a copule of raspberry bushes and strawberry patch which both do fairly well.

Not sure what your ground is like though? here in my garden it was very "peaty" just incorporated compost over the years seems to have helped.

Good luck with the poly tunnel!! Wind being the biggest factor for us in these remote far away parts, its hard enough some days just trying to stand up!!!   ( and thats without the wine)!!!

Good luck, keep us all posted.

x Miss B.
