Where did January go?
Iris reticulata – Harmony or Pauline
A rose I had in a vase, I’m attempting to see if it will set root, the flowers were just so pretty. Had a rustic, colour compared to most overly vibrant roses available.
The primulas aren’t doing so well after the snow, but they are growing back quite nicely.
This pot is going to get full very quickly.
I’m a little concerned this pot isn’t going to look as good as it normally does… Should be loads of Crocus in there…
Fresh growth on a Strawberry
Rose buds, some already have leaves/branches growing. Need to cut them back!
This Aubrieta is growing rapidly, I’ll have to cut it back soon because it’s taking over!
Lovely Fern leaves brighten up the Cherry border.
Bulbs coming up also in the Cherry border – surprised because it’s so shady!
Clematis ‘Willy’ buds
It’s definitely time to get rid of this Cordyline now.
Magnolia Stellata bud fattening up – I hope it’s a flower!
Yarrow buds… I can’t believe this has survived the snow? Is it possible it’s managed to produce this flower already and then it’s been killed by the frost?!
Sea Holly seeds looking rather mouldy!
This Sweet Rocket is enjoying the protection from the dead Cosmos/Verbena/Sea Holly, last time I saw it I swear it was less than half the size!
Looks like I need to get moving with jobs in the garden now it looks like Spring is definitely here.
I need new fence posts so have to remove some of the plants from the border so we can replace the old ones. I aim to only move the climbers, and I want to do it whilst they’re still dormant and won’t risk upsetting them. I have a huge trug I’ll put them in with compost for them to live in temporarily.
I hadn’t thought I’d need to do it just yet, I thought I’d be ok until Feb/March but looks like I need to get arranging for it to be done!
