MOVING POTS

In order to make room in the greenhouse I had to move various pots around.
I am hoping the small standard Bay trees will do
better in the front with perhaps not quite so much sun on them.












Similarly I decided to cluster the other pots of Bay and Box together either side of the garage door.









A tidy up by the wall was useful as there were lots of slugs and snails hiding under the leaf litter waiting to help themselves to my Hostas.
I threw the snails into the road then either the birds can eat them or the cars will squash them hopefully before they can get back into the garden.

The little twig in the foreground is a Ginka Tree. I did manage to germinate one from seed but then killed it by letting it get too damp, so eventually treated myself to a seedling from Hampton Court Flower Show a couple of years ago. It is exciting to see the new growth again.













The Hostas are coming along well after all the rain and now sun.
