Hot. Esp in my walled garden.
Like Punkdoc I am deciding where to put large cannas that arent already in the ground. Now is the time for final decisions
planting tomorrow morning for someone, she wants compost and she wants to visit a local nursery. Dont mind the nursery although she will buy everything. And her computer is on the blink again and expects me to sort it.
Trying to source Spigelia Wisley Jester. Had it a while back but difficult to get now. Lovely plant with red and yellow flowers. Exotic looking. Anyone have it?
carrots etc. are now quickly swelling .......delicious. Had a thought today about fleecing them (which is what I do) but if carrot fly overwimters in the soil surely they are already inside the fleece? Carrots are in same place as last year...ok, should have rotated but took the risk. Prob go for nematodes.
heleniums starting to flower, as well as dahlias. Echinaceas too. removed flower stems from hostas...think they look better for it. Besides they will send up stems again later.
