What perfect gardening weather we have been having here,we
have spent the last 2 days in the front garden. When I say we I mean myself and a lovely
backpacking couple from England.
Above is the garden today, I did get a little carried away pruning as you can see the same garden below in summer. hm mm a lot barer now.
The corner garden I have completely revamped, Marcus pulled out all the
things I didn't want any more, there were lots of plants that were just getting old and not doing well so out they came. Lots of cuttings have been potted up from all the pruning.
The salvias needed cutting right back as well and they will all grow back
and flower in spring.
All the roses were all pruned back hard, fertilized and well watered.
I have planted lots of daises for lots of colour come spring.
Have you been spending time this winter in the garden getting ready for spring.
Later in the week these gardens will all be mulched with bark chippings to help keep the water
in come summer.
