There are signs of life out in the garden, and one of them is even me from time to time. I got some weeding done last weekend, enough for a good layer of greens in the compost heap, but I soon retreated indoor, cold tootsies. Six things, in the garden, on a Saturday. Could be anything, you decide.
Here are my Six for this week.
1 – Finished compost. Last weekend I turned one much larger bay of finished compost into my two smaller bays which are now nearly full. This should be enough to mulch the borders and the veg beds.
2 – Straggly sweet peas. I sowed these back in October. I’ve largely ignored them over the winter. I should really pinch them back to a few leaves each. I should not be short of sweet peas this spring.
3 – Wisteria, overdue a prune. I really must get around to the winter prune. I need to take all these longer side shoots back to two or three buds. A job for this weekend, weather permitting.
4 – Hakonechloa mac. All dried up, no sign of new growth yet. It’ll come though. I don’t think it’s terribly happy where it is, but it is getting larger each year, albeit at glacial speed.
5 – Disappearing hose. Rather untidily I have just left this lying around for months, the grass is gradually saving my blushes. I shall probably be rewarded with leaks.
6 – Iris sibirica. Sown from seed a few years ago I now get flowers from them every year. They end up getting swallowed up by surrounding plants but I enjoy them while they last. Right now they are just emerging. I should probably divide them or something. Next year perhaps.
Those are my Six, what are yours? If you’d like to join in, just publish your post and pop a link to it in the comments below. If you also mention my blog in yours that would be tip top. For more details you can read the brief participation guide.
Have a super weekend, stay safe, and don’t forget to check back later on as more links get added during the day.
I’ll be back next weekend for another #SixOnSaturday.
