My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

June 2020 in my garden

Lots of plants flowering at the moment, in fact properly something different starts each day. The soil seems dry again even after so much rain but at least the water butts are full! I went out weeding yesterday and was excited to find some more spaces in the garden which means o can buy more plants. Still only online for me! Anyway here’s some pictures of what’s currently flowering

Sweetpeas grown from seed I’ve collected over several years so therefore I have no idea what variety but they smell lovely
Mock orange, it has a scent but not one I like. However, I love the white flowers
Geranium grown from a cutting in case the original died which fortunately it didn’t. I gave the original a harsh pruning in the winter and then kept it in the greenhouse overwinter but it looks great for the treatment it’s endured!

Cherry tree

I had a lot of trouble taking this picture, I wanted the cherry tree to be the centre of attention and avoid the compost heap, washing line, shed and too much of the big tree at the back. So here’s my best attempt, here’s hoping for more than 6 cherries this year and that we get them before the birds. We tried to cover it one year which meant the birds couldn’t get the cherries but neither could I and it didn’t look very nice!

Spring in my Cheshire garden

This is my favourite time of year when everything is growing, blossoming and the evenings are lighter longer every day but it’s not hot. I am not a fan of extremes of weather, whether hot or cold!

I have sweetpea and cosmos seeds coming up in the greenhouse and more to sow.

Here is what’s currently flowering/ blossoming in my garden. Including a forsythia, camellia and magnolia.
