A beautiful winter’s day….after a week’s break from the garden, due to both the weather and a rotten cold, I headed back out today with my trusty helpers. This was the first day since last week that we weren’t frozen – very unusual for our wee peninsula. Mind you, the garden doesn’t seem too bothered, everything’s growing on merrily.
Today, we removed the old hybrid teas from in front of the blue seat, they just didn’t do well enough but the nepeta Walkers Low that we had planted around them, had romped away. So today we lifted and divided them (three year old plants) and added peony Sarah Bernhardt and white phlox to the centre of each small bed. To add spring interest, I have dotted through forget-me-nots that had self sown in the autumn bed. Yikes! Forgot to take a photo – here’s one from last year – I just love the nepeta…slugproof, wildlife friendly, beautiful scent, wonderful cut flower, blooms from May till October….need I say more?
By the way, we all need to pootle more apparently….happy days!
