It’s another damp…

and dull day here in Harrow, London so I’ll staying indoors mostly armchair gardening doing some more flower seed sorting.

I’ve been plotting the past two mornings clearing most of the pot marigolds from the main flower patch.  They’ve all been cut up then added to the compost heap.  The area has been roughly hoed over but will need weeding properly when it’s drier.

 

I was surprised to see this clump of crocuses have started to appear as I don’t usually see them until well into the new year.

 

 

Another surprise is to see how well the comfrey is growing, and I’ll be able to cut it back later on for the forth time this year to add to the compost heap.

 

 

 

The sedum is still providing some interest as the pale stems are now mostly leafless and flower heads reddish-brown.

 

Have a good week, and take care!

  1. I think many plants will be thinking it’s time to grow because of the mild weather we’re having. They’re going to get a shock when it turns cold.

  2. The sedum looks really nice with the dried flower heads. I spotted a crocus shoot today as well. Your comfrey is doing very well. I have a bit, but it is in a very shady spot and does very poorly. I did a bit of leaf clearing today and put out meal worms and sunflower hearts for the birds. CJ xx
