Earlier in the week found me clambering over my coal bunkers setting up an irrigation system for my living wall. I then went on and planted it up.
Doesn't look much at the moment but hopefully it will develop and fill out, some plants will work and others not, we shall see. The only problem I envisage is the irrigation system......... I forgot to test it worked before I planted up doh! This is the bed that will become the jungle, not much at the moment, but I can promise it will look better by July
and just to give you a peek at last year in July...
well strictly speaking this wasn't last July as we were having a load of building work done, this was July 2010 but you can see what may happen given good weather.
This weekend we will be digging this area over adding loads of manure, chicken pellets and blood, fish and bone (Tropicals are greedy) and planting it all up.
Then most of these.......
This Musa Basjoo has been in the ground for many years now, and comes back even after the really bad winters we have had, these leaves have grown since the sun came out 3 days ago.
This is my Ricinus and by September should reach 10 - 12 ft not bad bearing in mind its an annual!
