More roses plus alpines

It has been very wet and windy lately with storm Doris going through, but bought two more Alpines for the front, from Morrison’s as usual. In pots and growing well

Arenaria “Montana” and Alpine wallflower “Bowles mauve”. I have heard of the latter, seems to be one often mentioned, so either good and reliable or common as muck. Either way both now planted out in the front and very well watered in with the rain

Still getting roses for the Age Concern border, two more today, from Poundland, unnamed, just “white” but they will do the job. Currently soaking in a bucket for planting tomorrow

Starting to look through my seeds, getting itchy about soaing tomatoeas and maybe beans sometime soon

Rhubarb and Roses

Been a bit busier today, the sun came out and it’s getting Spring like, first flower out in my garden, some may call it a weed but I call it a wild flower. A celandine glowing in the sun brightened the day with hints of more to come

Continuing stocking the Age Concern border with roses, I bought three more, unnamed from Poundland, two white and one yellow, look nice plants for a quid so not complaining. Now planted by usual dig hole and bung them in method, after an overnight soak in a bucket of water

Yesterday a friend at Age Concern gave me a spare rhubarb crown to replace the one that was destroyed by cats last year, went round his garden to collect, and now planted in a fresh spot in mine, near the fruit canes at back of garden

And with the sun out I continued cutting back the pyracantha, nearly there now, another good go should see it completed
