The old house garden: a weekly round up. 31st May 2017

Ive been so busy that I haven’t written the weekly round up of the old house garden! May is such a busy month in the english garden and the old house garden is no exception! It has grown so much since my last post that I am sure you will really see the difference.
Anyway, here are the photos!

I haven’t planted much in the new border but these plants were transported last year and seem to be doing well! They are all yellow, orange and red.

I repotted the Bay Tree as it was totally pot bound and it’s so much happier!

The other vegetables are growing well but some have been attacked by slugs and snails.
