I was relieved to find that the previous day’s gusty winds hadn’t caused any damage on the plot apart from a couple of tall cosmos that had toppled over which I righted and staked.
Yesterday and today have been cool and rather wet so this morning I went directly to the horticultural society trading shed. Not surprisingly it was very quiet with barely a handful of members calling in to buy anything.
I’ve started sorting the pot marigolds Flighty’s favourites, cosmos Sonata White and sunflowers Musicbox seeds that I’ve saved so far. Most of the latter I’ll be passing on to a good cause which will send to people along with other varieties to grow next year. More about that in a future post.
Thankfully the weather looks like staying dry and sunny from tomorrow right through the week so I hope to plant out the daffodils which I didn’t do last week. I’ve also got a few daffodils Spring Dawn which I’ll be planting in a container. These are bi-coloured with a lemon cup and white petals that only grow a foot (30 cm) high and flower during January/February providing some welcome winter colour.
Have a good week!
