It has been a very busy time here since you were all at the GV Last year. We have transformed our Front Gardens into Food and Fruit Gardens. My love of Citrus stands out and since being introduced to so many Sub Tropical Fruits both from Members and our Visit to Daley's last year, you will find our Front Garden now very edible.
Many of the old plants had been generous over the years, so cuttings have been taken and many have found their way into pots. The Curved Corner has now been widened and Our own Compost, Cow Manure, Rock Minerals, Dolomite Lime as well as other good Organic preparations have been added. After sitting for a while it was time to plant at the beginning of March.
On Friday I planted 50 Dwarf English Lavender (- Munstead (they were supposed to be Hidcote but it wasn't until after they were planted that I realized they had sent the wrong plugs) is a dwarf growing lavender with dark mauve flowers. A great compact growth habit makes it fantastic for pathway edging where a compact plant is needed.). The next row of plants will be Standard Citrus and the Middle Row a Citrus Hedge - Wish me luck with that one (I am still to start my trimming of the Citrus). In the corner of the back I will put my Low Chill Multi-grafted Cherry Tree - might need more luck with that one.
In the Clay Pots I am going to put a collection of Lavenders, and Grasses in the biggest pots and Lavender and Bright Colour Large and Small flowers to make a splash. Graham likes Bright Flowers as he can see them better, being Colour Blind.
The Mulch on top of this garden is Pea Straw, a by product of the Table Pea Industry.
