Hello SoS people! It’s another week to see what everyone has been up to in their gardens. What a lovely community we have all become and I really look forward to reading about everyone’s gardening plans as well as having a nosey at what other gardeners are doing! If you would like to join in or just want to read some more amazing gardening blog posts, do pop over to The Propagator blog to find out more.
1. School Sweet Peas
I planted these sweet peas just 12 days ago with my class of 4 and 5 year olds. I pre-soaked the seeds which has definately helped with germination. The children have been fascinated with how quickly they have grown. They are getting very tall now and I think it is too dark in my classroom so they are off to their new home -my greenhouse! I’ll take them back for the children to plant out in the Spring.
2. Root trainers and Sweet Peas
The Sweet Peas I ordered have arrived so I’m going to plant these up in the root trainers I bought last week.
3. Beech Hedge
We finally got around to trimming the beech hedge last Sunday. As advised by you lovely lot, we trimmed one side only and will do the other side next year. It needed a good prune as it was huge! Try not to see the builders porta loo in this picture!!
You know what it’s like when you work in the garden in Winter…..we always get a robin come and wait patiently so that he can feed on any insects you dig up! Well, we had two little robins so we were obviously doing a good job with that hedge! We sat and watched them for a while and they are very aggressive with each other! Lovely birds though. It’s the Big Bird Watch this weekend if you want to join in. I am going to try as it’s a great thing to do!
5. Japanese Quince
A little colour on a Winters day. This will be pretty when it finally flowering fully.
I love that you can now buy tulips in the supermarket again! They always add a little colour to the house. I know they are not in my garden but I thought they may brighten up your day too. I love the way they ‘flop’ as they open!
Happy weekend everyone!
