End of month view March 2010
A day late with my end of month view this month as I didn’t want to miss posting my tulip shot for Wordless Wednesday yesterday. There is some small progress in the garden from last month but typically its not really in the areas I am meant to be working on. The bed above looks a bit better as the daffodils have put on some real growth in the last couple of weeks. I have started to add to the planting and put in a group of 5 Angelica gigas this weekend behind the Phormium so hopefully those will look good in time.
The bank is looking a real mess particularly as I have thrown a load of shredded plant material on it to act as a mulch. The plants are beginning to re-emerge but I have much more to plant on this bank but I need to existing plants to emerge as I can’t remember what is where. Oh yes and I must get that sink moved!!! As for the fence, yes I know I need to plant some climbers – its on the to do list.
The pond border is perking up. I had forgotten that I had planted all my tulip bulbs that I used in pots the last couple of years in this border. To be honest I am amazed they have come up as the soil gets quite damp, now waiting to see whether they flower. If they do it should look fab. My Lobelia Cardinalis is also re-emerging from the winter cold. Waiting to see what else comes back up. Want this to be a hot border so will be booster the colour with some yummy Dahlias and more Lobelia – this time tupa.
The top of the wall border isn’t looking very inspiring. I have planted out some Verbascum seedlings and have a load of Salvia to put in as a starting point.
Hopefully by the end of next month things will really have moved on. Last month’s End of Month view is here
