Let the gardening commence

Feeling quite excited about the onslaught of spring and have been doing some prep work over the last few weekends.

I found this photo of the place when we moved in last year. So hopefully there will be some sunshine on Leith this summer and the place will just get better and better.

 

Leafy Leith July 2008

The daffodils that I planted last November are still blooming. Can’t say the same about the snowdrops but somebody told me they take a couple of years to establish, so better luck next year, I guess. I spotted the beginnings of some alliums poking through the other day and the red lavender is beginning to sprout some new growth.

The back garden is weeded and have planted some honeysuckle and clematis. This should cover the back wall along with a couple of flame flowers and a boston ivy – going for a red theme out back.

I’ve germinated some sweet peas and potted them up tonight. The sunflowers and poppies and the bee magnet seeds are in the ground already.

A little lean-to growhouse arrived today so once that’s erected I will be all set to go.  Got some seeds in the post from Mr Fothergills… 

Sadly, a cat seems to think my soon-to-be veg patch is a giant litter tray, so I have to work out how to get rid of him.

So that’s me for now. I’m planning to use this as my online gardening diary, thought it was a great way of keeping track of what’s going on.
