Today after spending too much time in the garden it seems to resemble a sense on normality now, although there is still so much to do. Why is that? I hear you ask, well these last few months I have been caught up at work and neglected the garden a little to much, to the point that I have been putting bedding plants in today. Yes i hear the groans from you to say, what are you doing, call yourself a gardener? Mine have been in for weeks. Well yes usually mine have been in for weeks but today was catch up day. So after doing the mundane lawn mowing, it was time to tie back some of the plants that had been knocked over by the wind and rain of the last week. So after tying back, it was time to plant the bedding, Cosmos, Aster and Calendula was the pick of the day to plant. I grow all my own so i have over a hundred of each plant. I managed to get a lot in but not nearly enough, still 6 trays of plants to go in.... 50 plants in each tray. So many more hours to go.
I hope you like the pictures and enjoy what I get to see everyday
Tulips are particularly pretty and lovely and have quite a long season with early, mid and late flowering blooms, perfect for any garden and personal taste, although for best results it is best to remove the bulbs after flowering and either dry out and store, or just discard and replace with new ones. Bulbs are so cheap these days that many varieties can just be replaced, If you have more expensive bulbs, once the flower has past, remove the head and leave the foliage until lt turns and then remove and store the bulbs in a cool dry place, then plant again in late Autumn early Winter.
My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
