Other shrubs are bursting with life.
But my lovely camellias have suffered a certain amount of wind and frost damage.
The primroses, although they look so delicate, are obviously as tough as old boots. They've taken over the ground beneath my blackcurrant bushes.
This is how the veg garden is looking. The contents of one of the compost heaps have been put in the potato trenches and onto the greens plot.
Last years 'Charlotte' potatoes are planted, but the varieties that I ordered some weeks ago have yet to arrive. Deliveries have gone to pot, I've been unable to get food deliveries from my usual sources in spite of being in the vulnerable category. (The computer just wrote, 'venerable' - I like that!) The soil has taken a battering, months of rain followed by a scouring wind.
Absolutely the best place to be is in either of the two greenhouses. They are crammed with seedlings.
So is the house!
A few random potatoes put to chit.
'Red Cherry' tomato seedlings.
Last spring I bought a dry-rooted rose for the house greenhouse, a spindly-looking thing, 'Maricel Neil'. I had grown it at our last house over twenty years ago and suddenly missed it's soft, floppy pale lemon flowers.
It has grown wonderfully and is full of bud-
watch this space!

keep home, keep safe, keep well.
Your seedlings are doing well, Rosemary and your gardens are about to open up to new life. I have been working on mine and most are OK. I am grateful for what I have.ReplyDelete
Yes, this is a good time to have a garden. I feel very sorry for those people contained in high-rise flats with no access to outside space.Delete
Looking glorious already! Only because you say so, it's not apparent from the pics that the weather is too bitter to be out. And your posy of camellias look Flower Show perfect!ReplyDelete
That's the tempter, Pip, the sun looks so inviting but the north wind is a biter!Delete
Aren't camellia flowers perfection.
It looks all wonderful! Same here; the sun lures us out but one really still needs a padded coat and scarf. It is going to warm up considerably over the second half of this week, with temps up to 19C on the weekend.ReplyDelete
Bring it on!Delete
I hear that garden centres are under threat of closure and may have to bin thousands of plants at the time when they should be selling the most. That is hard.ReplyDelete
Yes, they've closed, what a disaster. I'm busy digging for victory but my neighbour is of the slash and burn school, not growing a solitary thing.Delete
Our plum tree is still asleep here in Yorkshire.ReplyDelete
Hopefully it will waken in glorious style this coming weekend when we are promised some WARM weather!Delete
The nice thing about the end of our camelias, it heralds the beginning of peonies blooming.ReplyDelete
Oh, but let's not rush them, Doc, they are such beautiful flowers. My peonies are looking very skinny, they will be a while yet.Delete
