Damp ...foggy...and warm.
Got verbena homestead purple planted out .....cuttings taken in early spring that are now good bushy plants. We are supposed to get rain now so they will be settled in.
sorting out and planting my nephew's new build garden tomorrow. giving him camelia Anticipation, salvia Amistad in a 5 litre pot and 70 cm plus tall and flowering, some voltage yellow osteospermums, verbena homestead purple, dahlia bishop of llandaff, again in a 5 litre pot and not far from flowering, parsley plant, verbena bonariensis (5 litre pot), heliotrope Chatsworth in 5 litre pot and flowering, hosta fire and ice, a couple of echinaceas and goodness knows what else.
his ground is hard to dig...typical builders' style....so I intend to plant up some summer stuff for now and get to know what he and his partner would like from the garden come the autumn
