to be able to do plenty of plotting on four mornings during last week. I dug up one clump of crocosmia, thoroughly forked the ground over then added plenty of compost. This is now the new strawberry bed where I’ve replanted ten younger plants. I then dug up all the old strawberry plants then roughly forked the area over. I will be adding a couple of barrow loads of compost before digging it over again. I’ll be planting the gladioli here, along with the cosmos.
I dug up and replanted the Michaelmas daisies moving them away from the dogwood tree. I think that I will be sowing nigella/love-in-a-mist in this area. As you can see the tete-a-tete daffodils are now beginning to flower. All week the robin was a constant companion, and on Friday the female one came and went a couple of times. I also caught a glimpse of a handful of goldfinches in a tree on a nearby plot.
The yellow primula on the windowsill at home has been flowering well since I got it three weeks ago and last week I bought this white one. I’m hoping to dig out my compost heap this coming week, as well as sorting out the flower area around the dustbin lid pond where the poached egg plants grow.
Have a good week!
