Snappys planting List
Before I go back to work tomorrow and slow my blog posts down I thought I would have a relective post, about what I have done so far to the wild garden...
Hils took me to the Wakefield Recycling centre where I got a massive 220 litre compost bin.It barely fitted into the cars back seat! A black tank sat now in the corner where the boxes were before.
This is what has been planted so far :
Six Hellebore Nigra (Christmas roses),
three Heathers (photographed),
One Camelia with pink flowers,
five winter Primulas in yellow, pink, and blue,
five Polyanthus Blue shades (not flowered yet),
a selection of three hollys and three evergreen shrubs,
Four Rose bushes ( Red, White, Yellow, and Peach),
one Butterfly Bush,
a replanted Geranium,
and One Lilac tree in a container.
The Spring bulbs I have planted are:
Dwarf Daffodil Minnow,
Tulip Toronto (orange),
Tulip purple prince (dark purple),
tulip Fosteriana White Empereor (white),
tulip Red Riding Hood(red),
Tulip Queen of the Night (Black),
and Narcissus Caniculatas.
I bought today two Carex grasses, a pot of rosemary , and two climbing roses. One was pink and fragrant called Zephirine Drouhin, and a white one called Climbing Iceberg. I accidently left the new Honeysuckle in Hil's car as she tucked it under the back seat. I need to wait for her to come with it.
The Fruit bushes are still in their pots, darkness fell before I planted them. I have 150 litres of compost for the seedlings and the garden. An apple tree is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow from Gardenexpress.co.uk!
Four night shifts to go before I can get into the garden again, actually that will be Christmas Eve moning when I finish.
