Garden – May 2021

02/05/2021 Leave a comment

April was cold and dry and it delayed most of my planting. The things that were planted, mostly the Premier in bags haven’t been damaged but their growth has been slowed. The end of April and into May has been changeable but still cold. My replacement Strawberry plants arrived and are now growing if somewhat slowly.

One Friday in April it was raining so I put the weed and feed on. Two problems, I put too much on and it immediately stopped raining. Repairs are plan for May Day Bank Holiday Monday. All the holes in the garden are now filled Premier and Blue Danube. The rains came and the garden is now completely covered in weeds. When the potatoes push through it will be all out weeding.

The weather in March was all over the place, including the hottest days of the year so far. There was also frosts and some very rainy days. The lawn was patched and despite it saying germination with four days it took a fortnight. My Strawberry plants are rather sparse, so new ones are on order. I was hoping to put them in over Easter but they haven’t arrived, which is just was well as the overnights have been rather cold and getting colder and frostier. I have 22 McCain Premiere First Early seed Potatoes in, both in containers and bags. The rest are currently waiting to go in due to the impending frosty weather. Looks like it will be mid April before they go in. However, the holes for them in the garden have been dug and it will just be a question of popping them in, covering them and giving them a good watering. Much planting as soon as the weather turns warmer.

The lawn has been moved twice since the last video and is looking green and good. Patch repairer and Weed & Feed is on order. The digging of the garden has finally begun but it’s slow going with lots of weeds and roots to remove. i have to get there by the end of March, which frost willing the first potatoes will go in. A little bit of Summer Onion replanting to replace those that didn’t make it through the Winter. The chitting potatoes not have bigger eyes. Spring is here.

The second month of Winter and it’s post a hard overnight frost. It’s supposed to get a little warmer later so I might mow the top off the lawn and then feed it. Seeds ordered and have arrived, Potatoes ordered and due to arrive at the end of the month. Planning to dig the garden in February if the weather is willing. All rather quiet on the garden front.
