We're busy people at the moment. The season's fast approaching and there's a million and one things to do, the 'mother' of all snagging lists!
The Thyme is fast filling out in the wall.
Decided to plant strawberries in the large urn. The fruit should look great as it trails down. This is an old French variety calles Anais, taste test to follow.
Pots of Bacopa. Kinda into white flowers at the moment, that includes the strawberry blooms.
240,000 Cosmos seedlings potted on. Well it felt like it. The varieties are Picotee and Rose.
Below is a masterclass in loafing. Growing in the large planter is Convolvulus mauritanicus.
Divisions of Pheasant grass, Stipa calamagrostis. This grass multiplies like crazy.
Deep, almost burgundy red Perlagonium. I wasn't convinced I'd grow any this year but I fell for the colour. Come high summer this plant will be overflowing with blooms just below the barn window
So that's a quick reccy of this and that. The alarm's set for an early start tomorrow.
