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.

Garden – April 2021

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.

Garden – December 2020

Another three frosty nights, just like last month but really mostly rain. Not much in the way of growth although the lawn is still very green. May need to get some more Onion sets over the Christmas seed sales as a couple have failed to germinate. Black Friday Seed Sales are now a thing even if they haven’t been dispatched yet. Working on what Seed Potatoes for 2021. Maybe planting then in Pots and Bags again. Emphasis on Chips as you would expect. Merry Locked Down Christmas.
