April update

by Wendy Syddall

There is so much currently flowering in the garden that I thought I’d do one big post.

Every time I go out something new has come out, our garden really comes into its own at the beginning of spring – bulbs, forget-me-nots, pasque flowers, trees blossoming, oh and the weeds. We have a theory there is a ‘weed of the year’ each year which outgrows the rest. I don’t really try and get aquatinted with weed names, just get them out when see them. This year is a white flowered spindly thing – quite petty actually! I may photograph it for you below!I have removed the winter insulation for the greenhouse this week as it’s been so warm. My free seeds from BBC gardeners world magazine are doing well but the others I dosed recently have not bothered to come up at all.

Here’s my pictures:

Lastly the picture of ‘weed of the year’. A little clump of last nights findings – they get everywhere
