The mystery plant in the large black container has grown really well and is now starting to flower.
I’m told that it’s White Meadowsweet (Spiraea alba var. latiflolia), and later in the year I will replant it out on the plot.
One of the few jobs that I did do doing the week was to cut the comfrey plants right back and add the chopped up foliage to the compost heap. It will soon start growing again.
In the right-hand photo you can see the raspberry bushes. Sadly some of the plants died during the past couple of months, and I’m not sure what caused this. At least two other plot-holders had the same problem, which we think that it was probably due to the spring weather. Once they’ve finished fruiting I’m going to cut the plants right back, hoe round, add plenty of compost then mulch and hope that they are okay next year.
Among the various nasturtiums I particularly like this red one and the yellow ones behind.
Take care, and have a good week!
