Garden March 2019

Spring definitely seems to be in the air round here, in stark contrast with last year!

 

The hellebores are still covered in flowers! 

There are two containers like this, planted up with the same violas and daffodils as the hanging baskets

The rhubarb is beginning to really grow like mad!

Signs of spring appearing – the first sign of leaves on the standard apple tree

Cornus (dogwood) – these I only planted last year so I’m going to give them another year to get established before I hard prune them.

The hanging baskets have turned out quite well. I’d ordered viola plug plants back in the autumn and when they turned up they were REALLy teeny tiny, so teeny tiny that I wasn’t sure they’d have time to come to anything before the cold weather, but they’ve actually managed to grow a bit and flower

These are some of the daffodils I planted in the autumn. The squirrels seemed to dig up quite a few of the bulbs, so I’m relieved to see that there are still some around to flower!

How is your garden looking now spring is on the way?

  1. Everything looks great! Love the daffodils — one of my favorites. I want to plant some here, somewhere, but not sure where yet.

    We have our food garden almost fully planted. Just tomatoes (lots and lots of them), green beans, and cucumbers. We will add pepper plants, but none of the stores have them yet. Oh, also have some garlic growing near the well house and added asparagus there. Not sure how well the asparagus will do, but I know DH is hopeful!

    I have 2 baskets to hang but haven’t found anything for them yet. Thinking one for basil and maybe another herb that won’t compete too strongly. The other for flowers, but I haven’t decided what yet.
