Today was a good day.
It began with a trip to the Garden Centre to pick up some compost. I used it while working with the garden pots for most of the afternoon.
- Eight hebes potted on to larger pots that can now stay outside. When these grow to fill the pots, they’ll either be planted or given away.
- Ten hebe cuttings were potted into small pots from the cuttings tray as they had all rooted
- Three lemongrass stalks that had spent the winter inside, crowded into tiny pots were taken outside and potted into deep pots – lemongrass roots like to go deep.
- An ailing bay was taken from one pot and put into a smaller one to go in the greenhouse to recover – but it’s probably too late.
- A large pot was prepared and planted with Stargazer lilies
- Another two smaller pots were also planted with more Stargazer lilies
- The seed trays with the Arum Italicum were dusted off and the moss and weeds cleared.
- The whole lot was watered
- The dried sunflowers on the patio were finally cleared up and put in the compost bin
- A load more Stargazer and Regal lilies were planted into a border prepared last year
- Clearing leaves, tidying up and just generally more potting around
It’s late February but the days are getting longer, I see the sun more often and there is lots to do to prepare the garden for the coming spring.
