This is what is growing and going on in our garden at the moment...Hart Nursery has a winter special on for shrubs and trees so when I was in the area last week I picked up a lemon, olive, clementine and blueberry bush to plant. Winter is a good time to establish new trees and shrubs.
|Lemon tree planted under my daughter's bedroom window|
|Olive tree planted neat compost heap|
|Clementine planted in reworked potato planters that didn't work. Chives are going to be planted around the bottom as a companion planting to keep away aphids.|
Blueberry bush in a wine barrel. We need to get another variety for pollination but the nursery didn't have at the time I was there.
|Broad beans growing strong, sprouting broccoli and purple cauliflower and beets in front.|
|Garlic looking good with self seeded calendula growing behind..so pretty.|
|Peas gone crazy and the wind knocked over their support yesterday, should be able to start eating some this week.|
|Desperately trying to finish up the lettuce so that we can get the next planting in of brassicas which are waiting in newspaper pots.|
So that's it for the garden update....how's yours growing? Are you in winter or summer?
