We have been spoilt with the weather the last few weeks, according to Gardeners Question Time (BBC Radio 4) the allotments are 5 weeks ahead!! So to me that's 5 weeks more growing time!!
After a cold winter I had unusually quite a few losses in my heated greenhouse. I am down to 4 Brugmansias? and only 2 of my Maurellis came through.
I have found one or 2 shoots at the side of one or two pots which are being encouraged.
The T-Rex has been re-potted, I know it should go in the ground but I have already lost one in a previous winter, I will see how this goes and if necessary use big pots!!
My Gunnera is half the size it used to be, but half is better than nothing!
My tree ferns also survived although I believe if I had left them outside I don't think they would have! I have split and repotted some of my bamboos as well!
The Hardy Bananas are just that Hardy! The first pic has been in the ground all winter in fact for a number of years now!
This one I bought last year and had in a pot last year which got moved into the Greenhouse over winter and got planted out a couple of weeks ago, this is also supposed to be a hardy one so its in the ground now so we shall see! I do like the striping on this!
The pond at 7am this morning, this is a favourite place of mine.
The jungle area at the moment
but just look what it looked like in July last year
Not long to wait considering how quickly time passes. I only wish it looked like this for more of the year!
