The lean to is looking so much nicer since I added the hanging plants.
It's Hosta time again
The President recovering well after a hard pruning last year.
I do like my pots as you may have noticed but in the current hot spell it does make such a lot of work especially since we have a hose pipe ban already.
What's that in the Hosta bed?
Ah a better look.
|Nelly Moser already putting on a show|
|Hosta bed but we will ignore the ground elder in the bed behind, sigh!|
I decided to put two Acers in the shady corner as they were suffering from too much sun last year.
|Mrs N. Thompson|
|The Empress Josephine|
Belle of Woking
Lots happening in the vegetable area.
At last seedlings are becoming plants after a rather prolonged cold spell in April
Hanging baskets waiting to be hung out
|Cosmos and Lupins and some cloches of clematis cuttings which have now been moved to a shady spot|
It is really strange having so much more space since the Leylandii hedge was removed - however it is rather sunny for my nursery although the Laurel are full of shoots so it won't be long before we have a decent and more easily managed hedge again.
Sadly the Wisteria is struggling to grow so we decided to put another plant in, another casualty of the decorating work last year due to new windows. We really missed our beautiful flowering Wisteria this year.
The Wallflower are still looking lovely and colourful
|We decided to move the barrel and connect to the downpipe with a coat of paint I think it looks ok.|
