A gallery of pics of the Linaria flowers – Now featuring Aphids! 😉
Today my friends Dad donated more to gardening efforts than a kick starter project could ever hope to achieve.
Chris and Trish are moving out of their awesome home and today I was let loose on the garden…
Chris filled my car with buckets of nutrients, compost and castings plus a foam box of about 10000 worms!
His garden was so awesome I was a bit overwhelmed. …
I took some cuttings of many different Hebes, and a white hibiscus (I think I messed this up- I took ‘softwood’ but think I should have taken a ‘heel’ in the cutting.
Chris has amazing Helebores! So many patches that are flowering like crazy- beautiful greens and rust colored varieties.
I was so overwhelmed I forgot to dig up couple of clumps. … hopefully i might be able to go back in the he next few days and take some clumps.
They move out this week so I may have missed my only opportunity 😦
Helebores or not, Chris’s contributions will give me enough cuttings and supplies to help create a new patch here at the flats and help make more people smile:-)
Thanks again Reardon Family
Pics tomorrow of worms and cuttings being planted out. ..
I had a spare space by my front door…. exactly where my boots should go 😉 Continue reading These boots were made for…?
The new east side strip has been a success in many ways:
- All the seeds have sprouted
- The productive end has already given us Radishes and Rocket!
- The Residents of Mitchell Mews now stop and chat!
With this success in mind, I’d really like to reclaim the garden near the fence on the eastern side. Continue reading Shameless /kickstarter
Needs a bit of TLC at the moment. .. but the soil looks pretty good compared with the garden around the flats
YAY! got an email to say there is a small plot available at MCCG.
Heading off to check it out in a few minutes 🙂
