the past three mornings which has been most welcome. I cleared all the dead foliage and stems from the asters and sedums then weeded and hand forked all round them, and the daffodils, all along the the top edge next to the roadway.
I’ll be lifting, moving and replanting the perennial cornflowers and sedums soon. In that area I’m going to grow one of the sunflowers Holiday, which as I mentioned recently grows four feet tall and the same across. I was originally only going to grow one of these because of the room they need but now intend to grow three of them.
At the other end of the plot I’ve cleared the dead crocosmia foliage as new growth has started to appear.
This morning I weeded, then hoed, the two areas where I’ll be growing the climbing French beans and tomatoes. I did the same with the strawberry patch.
The weather forecast for the coming week is bright, dry and surprisingly mild so I’ll be making the most of it. Top of the list is to weed then fork over the area where I’ll be growing the onions, and to prune the rose Pretty Lady and the dogwood rose.
Take care, and have a good week!
