Had a weeks holiday, and came back to being able to see things have been growing.
On my return I had to pot up loads of tomato plants. As usual I have too many (I am guessing I have around 45-50 plants!
I have potted on the 6 dhalia flowers I bought from aldi. 3 of them are in flower already. They look lovely.
The apple tree has loads of fruit appearing. It’s odd, the tree seems to produce a lot every other year, with a fallow year in between.
The raspberry bushes were covered in flowers before we went, and are now covered in small fruits. Therefore I am already thinking about how much freezer space we have!
The hardy geraniums are in flower and are a lovely deep blue colour.
I have done a lot of weeding around the gladioli that are now visible, and hopefully they flower well.
The peruvian lilies and Asian lilies are in flower.
The hostas I moved have flowers coming. The Iris’ I planted in march have purple flower buds. Looking forward to seeing them open.
None of the balloon plant seeds I sowed have germinated. Thankfully we have a few plants already.
Been observing dragon flies around the pond which is always a joy!
Just on the above sentence, plants want to grow if they can. Unless you starve them of food or water, or remove all leaves/bark etc, then you're unlikely to do irreparable damage. They are resilient!Don’t want to cock up any previous good work and do irreparable damage, so any tips would be appreciated!
https://www.homesandgardens.com/gardens/best-trailing-plants-for-hanging-basketsLooking for plants(flowers) that trail well. Got 3 planters and want stuff to drape down the sides. Anyone got any to recommend that do it and are noob friendly?
So far got some lobelia, snow carpet and a yellow vine thing that are draping down nicely. Got some busy lizzy, fuchsia and livingstone daisy too but they aren't really draping/yet (am trying to force them to ha)
Grown everything from seed bar the yellow vine one but don't mind paying for a few. Or can keep them in mind for early next year
Nasturtiums kinda piss me off so not those and got loads of petunia in pots so not those and neither really go downwards
I've started off some morning glory this week as think those might do it
