I’ve removed all the bulbs from both planters, and after checking them I put them in a bucket for the foliage to die back. Some will go back later in the year whilst others will be planted out on the plot.
In the long planter I sowed a packet of linaria maroccana, and yesterday I noticed that the seedlings had started to appear. Four sunflower Pacino seeds were sown the square planter as these only grow a foot and a half tall.
Around the plot various sunflower seedlings have appeared including this giant single. I wonder how tall it will eventually grow?
The aquilegias are now all in flower, including this white one which has a smaller mauve one growing alongside it. I remembered to stake them this year as I’ve lost them before through not doing so.
Around the dustbin lid pond can be seen perennial cornflowers, creeping buttercups and the first iris.
There’s lots more happening including several gladioli leaves showing, some tiny nasturtiums and pot marigolds that self-seeded from last year and there are at least twenty buds on the rose Pretty lady!
Foliage has appeared on all the potatoes with, from left to right, two rows each Vales Emerald, Charlotte, Kestrel and Desiree. Over on the right are the broad beans Witkiem manita.
