My plum tree is looking ok but not the apple trees. I have had an aphid infestation so ordered ladybirds on line.?In the process of doing the garden path. My potatoes are growing like madI have been just doing the same. Planted spring onions in the greenhouse along with a few others. Manures the veg patch..In this bad time it is nice to have something that is giving pleasure.
That looks lovely. I have got to do mine. I’m collecting plastic bottles. Apparently if you drill holes in them and put string through you can hang them with plants in them.My very kind son in law lead the other kids in painting my fence yesterday, over half done and I am so pleased. Spent an hour this morning arranging plants. I was just overwhelmed by his kindness and he says he will come and finish the rest when he has time. It was so hot
I love being in the garden. It is my escape route. I have just ordered a greenhouse. It’s coming from Germany but I cannot waitOh that’s different, I had some hessian, overlooked the sides and made some pouches. I put plastic bags inside as the hessian deteriorates in water. I used it for potatoes last year, pulled the sack up and the bottom fell out!!
My husband put the fence up the year before he died but it desperately needed painting and it has put a real happy spring in my step today. It’s really stupid as I have been feeling really down in the dumps and tearful but half a painted fence and I am happy as Larry!!
Hi. The acer is looking a bit sad. It is potted in ericaceous compost but I have it in a whisky barrel . With the rain down here it is a bit saturated. I think I’m going to have to repot it for it to survive.Was that your acer in the photo? I put mine in pots of ericaceous compost for a year or two before planting out....that seemed to have worked. Greenhouse is looking good. I bet you can’t wait to use it. Showed mum my garden today....she rarely walks in it.....let’s just say that she was a bit non plussed ..
