I’m riddled with WORMS!

During the raid yesterday, Chris gave me a foam box containing about 10000 worms.

14 Days to go

The Raid

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. ..

Shameless /kickstarter

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

Red Abutilon (Chinese lantern)

I found an awesome Red Chinese Lantern Tree growing in roadside garden
Mum struggles to propagate the Red ones so im hoping these will take off so we can share

Red Abutilon (Chinese lantern)

Here they are all planted out. Used my own propagation mix, mostly cow poo and compost.

hope they work out.

Mum makes awesome ‘twisted plants’ she takes 3 or 4 different colours of these and plaits them into a standard… like this one https://www.jparkers.co.uk/plant-0001292/abutilon-tricolour-p12/

I’m determined to beat her, and create a 5 colour variety!
