Thinking of Spring
This also means the heavier landscaping work on the garden can soon begin, I’ve been holding off planting some Pulmonaria, Ferns and Geraniums under the cherry tree so that I could get them all planted together and hopefully not forget where the bulbs are. I ordered 100 anemone bulbs which I hope will bring some much needed colour to the shady area in the Spring…
Now I just have to hope I don’t accidentally dig up some Dicentra and Toad lilies I planted in April/May.
I’ll be removing the Photinia at the same time to open the area up a little because it’s casting too much shade – and stops me from cutting the hedge! As I try to keep everything wildlife friendly, I just feel it’s taking up too much room and giving practically nothing back. So I may replace it with something like a Skimmia or Witch hazel for Spring colour/Perfume/Food for early pollinators.
For the rest of the garden I ordered:
X100 Galanthus – Nivalis Single
X10 Allium Aflatunense
X 50 Tulip Turkestanica
X 50 Iris Reticulata ‘Pauline’
X100 Crocus Chrysanthus Cream Beauty
X100 Crocus Biflorus Miss Vain
X10 Allium Purple Sensation
No photos, sorry. Not getting home until 6-8pm has left me with very little time for the past couple of weeks. It’s induction week next week, students are flooding into the city for both Universities and there’s no way I’m going anywhere near the city centre for a while other than into Uni. It’s madness!
