My Clematis

My Clematis

A few people say they have missed photos of my garden so I have taken this this morning. Unfortunately I don't do any of it anymore but I have a lovely young (well young to me) man who takes care of it for me under instruction of course ;)

He has started to prepare it ready for the plants to spring up when they feel like it I must have known that there would come the day because I planted so many perennials that the garden almost takes care of itself plant wise.

Lovely picture of the garden, I have a lot of perennials like yourself. As you say they grow themselves. Just had my front lawn removed for paving, kept a plant rockery though but it is much easier to manage. Thanks Jan for sharing your latest picture we have to have gardens that fit our medical needs don't we ? :)

My garden has all been slabed. I'm growing mainly veg all in large pot, runner beans, broad beans, carrot, tom, parsnip and beetroot. Not forgetting the strawberries. I have a few flowers in tubs at the front. Try to just put flowers that keep coming back including bulbs. Have got to sort them out they look a mess. Will have to get one of my sons to bring them round the back so I can do them. I would love to have it back how it used o be lawns and soil to grow flowers in,

Yours looks great,

Chris

Hi Chris, tell me about growing beets in tubs, I've not had any luck with that at all and beets are my very favourite xxxx

The first time I grew beets it was in plant pots so they were small, I'm now going to use a tub . Not made up my mind yet which size . I will let you know, the seeds are just breaking soil in the propergator.

Hope you are not suffering with the

poor air quality.

It's lovely Jan , It's in flower early? Mine flowers much later in the season, tried to add a photo however don't have a clue. I can garden if I sit on the floor on a cushion and use a trowel.....I say hello to neighbours passing by and they always call me a gnome lol. I have got some pineberry plants this year, however after reading up I have to get some normal strawberry plants to plant near as all pineberries are female!
