Spring Flowers

Well i’m finally writing a post, been so busy for the last few weeks with exam preparations, luckily spring term gives me alot more free time so i’ll be blogging a bit more frequently now.

Well back to the garden iv’e had beautiful displays from the flower bed all throughout march and now in april the warm weathers bringing out the flowers in all their full glory.

Heres what you missed while I was away.

And when the sun came

The flower bed now

As you can see alots happened but i’m really happy how the tulips have taken over from the daffodils and early flowering bulbs and the colour aswell is really something, definately an improvement from last year.

Blooming Bulbs

Currently in the flower bed the bulbs have grown massive, with the daffodil flower buds near bursting and more crocuses appearing everyday, spring is right around the corner and I can’t wait!

 The flower bed may still have gaps in it as the tulips are still only poking their noses through the ground along with the other types of bulbs I planted, but It will fill out as the other plants get larger. The picture of the little bulb poking through is the alliums (which I absolutely adore). I’ll also be able to start to sow some flowers soon as long as the weather improves.

Hopefully the flower bed is going to look great this year come late spring/early summer the bed will be chock full of fleurs, just you wait and see.

What are the bulbs like in your garden?

Sprouting Greens

These are some of the salads I sowed back in October. Now I said I wanted to plant them outside but thank God I didn’t as we had the coldest winter on record a few weeks later, so yes they are still in the greenhouse I want to get them outside but I think its still a bit too nippy for ’em i’ll have to see by the weekend if there going to be ready or not. But Its nice to have some life in the greenhouse during these really cold months.

Whats going on in your greenhouses ?

Growing Leeks

This year I decided I wanted to grow leeks even though i hadn’t grown them before.So in March I sowed a variety called ‘Musselburgh’, by april they had shot up and were growing well. When they were about pencil thick I planted them outside, first by dibbling a hole and then twisting them into it so all the roots go in, I don’t fill in the hole just water it to the top and leave them to get on with it.

How Do You Grow Leeks?

Winter Greens

Well it’s well into october now with the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder. So I decided to sow some winter greens, Red and green lettuces along with some spinach to keep us going through the cold winter months. Last year when I grew spinach I transplanted them outside and they did rather well so hopefully if the weather isn’t too bad (fingers crossed) I can plant them outside.

What winter greens are you growing?

Welcome to the Jungle

This year i decided i would grow Tomatoes inside the greenhouse instead of outside (like i did last year). I decided to grow 6 different varietys which were ‘tigerella’, ‘Gardeners’ Delight’, ‘Black Cherry’, ‘Red Cherry’, ‘Money Maker’ and ‘Alisa Craig’. I sowed them back in March and whithin a few weeks they had germinated and thanks to the unusally warm early spring days they grew quickly. When they were big enough i planted them into grow bags and they grew and grew until i had to stake them in. I was happy with their progress until a few weeks ago when gardening mags proclaimed that it was about time to harvest, as they showed large, plump, red tomatoes in pictures which was all well and good until i looked at my plants which only just had buds on them! I was getting worried until under the growth i found these little green gems. Now i know its abit late but i always leave my veg more time just incase they surprise me, fingers crossed.

Whats your tomato harvest been like this year ?
