April at The Gap

Posted on April 20, 2017 at 14:00 5 Comments

Weather has finally cooled down and a bit of a break at work means I give the garden my almost full attention

Bed 1 got a facelift in time for summer, with frame and shade. Now planted with rescued cherry toms from facebook share page in the Gap, spring onions, parsley. Bed 2 has more advanced volunteer cherry toms. I planted celery, which is still alive but I don't argue with volunteer tomatoes.…

A mild december, early new year

Considering the weather is holding on to a very mild gardenable temperature with steady drizzle and tomorrow is the most favorable time to plant fruit in the garden, it's a good time for early new year resolution to clean up the garden. Photos to come.

Spring in The Gap

It's good to be back in the garden. A bit of TLC is really starting to pay off. Only a few weeks ago the dwarf mulberry was covered in ants and scale. A good brush, feed and regular watering and it is positively weighed down by plump fruit all over.…

March at The Gap

I decided it was time for a clean up. I don't like clutter and I have been feeling like my garden has been highjacked by a pumpkin vine and madagascar beans. So Garden got a haircut.

Thanks very much for the lovely afternoon Valerie-Ann.

If you could bring plate to the Christmas garden visit that would be great.

Also please thank Rhys for the hose which will come in very useful

H Valerie jerusalum artichokes would still be growing and not ready for harvest yet and it may be hard at the moment to find   any rhisomes. to grow You may have to wait a while winter perhaps .One place worth a try is Kenmore village in the fruit shop although they may be in the same predicament..Good luck

Welcome to the Garden Visit group Valerie-Anne.

Keep an eye on the Calendar within the group to see where visits are planned for the year. I also list them in Events as some require RSVP.

Addresses for the visits are sent out the week before via email to your actual email account (whatever you have provided to the BLF site) - they don't turn up in your Private Messages.

Let me know if you have any problems. I'm happy to help :)
