    1st Early 'Rocket' seed potatoes have now been sown!

    Potato 'Rocket' sown , Dave's Allotment 2014 garden , and Potato 'Pentland Javelin'
    For a couple of months I had some 1st Early ‘Rocket’ seed potatoes chitting in our kitchen, finally they have now been sown! I spent a couple of days during the week digging in some horse manure & on Wednesday I got them in. They occupy the first row in the bed alongside the path....

    The New potatoes ‘Rocket’ & the unknown variety I put in are now sprouting! These were planted during the first few days of March 2013 but have taken till May before sprouting! The maincrop spuds sown in Gerry’s allotment in April have now sprouted also! I spend a few moment...

    Leek ‘Giant Musselburgh’ sown in the greenhouse

    Leek 'Giant Musselburgh' and Greenhouse 2013 garden
    I sowed some Leek ‘Giant Musselburgh’ in the greenhouse on the allotment today. This will be the first time I’ve grown them from seed! I was given a few plants by another allotmenteer a couple of years ago but I “heeled” them in near the greenhouse & never did get around to planting them out!...

    Daffs in March

    Spring crocus Blooming, Daffodils planted out on balcony Blooming, and Balcony garden
    The Daffs are now flowering on my balcony. They began a couple of weeks ago but have been slow to open due to the decidedly unspring-like weather we have had during the last few weeks. These are the Daffs I planted in the white troughs on the balcony floor back in October 2012. The smaller Mini-D...

    Crocuses now out in full force

    Daffodil 'Tete-a-tete' Blooming, Spring crocus Blooming, and Balcony garden
    The Crocuses now out in full force on my balcony! :-)) They have been joined by the Mini-Daffs ‘Tete-a-Tete’ as the Crocuses are a bit behind this year. I haven’t got as good a showing as last year at present but when the cold wind & snow let up & we get a few warmer day...

    Cineraria on living room table

    Florists cineraria Flowering and Home garden
    I took a photo of this lovely Cineraria sitting on living room table this morning. Our daughter gave it to me last Saturday when my wife & I went to her house for dinner. Being as Sunday was Mother’s Day she invited us round. In Spain Father’s Day is always on the 19th of March, w...

    Leek bed now empty!

    Leeks from fellow allotmenteer Harvesting and Allotment Plot 12A 2013 garden
    The one full bed of Leeks, that were given to me as seedlings by a fellow allotmenteer, have now all been harvested. I was down on the plot for a hour or so this afternoon & decided to empty the bed as I need to prepare it as soon as possible for the next crop to go in, possibly main crop pot...

    That Was March 2012

    Horniman garden
    It flew by. A birthday, a proposal… despite the fact that we need to find the “baby bear’s porridge” ring (the first was too small, and now the second is too big!), Tom and I are engaged. I have become yet more enamoured with my job. All that goes on in spring is well wort...

    Ides of March

    Last week saw the first pussy willow puffs, a few small butterflies, and even several mosquitoes. We reached temps approaching 60F, but not all the snow was melted until this week. There is still ice on the river around the edges. Today it is raining after two days of wind attempting to dry the m...

    I must document what’s delighting me so much right now. Broadly, all the flowers! …all the buds and shoots too! But Chionodoxa. Just wow. Like the reticulated Irises of a week ago, these are worth growing as neat little alpines in pots at eye level to fully appreciate their spectacle....

    March 7th 2012...warm and windy

    Well I got the round raised bed mucked out of old mulch and the BD,LEH pruned down. Cut them at about 3 feet. Cut the Spirit of freedom at about 5-6 feet. A couple are wound around the New Dawn and I don’t want to disturb them right now. Defoliated all of them except the 2 Pink knock outs. ...

    Wow! Yet again a 2-jounal entry day!

    I think I could get into this blogging thing! I’ve posted another video on FloraFaunaFul on YouTube. It’s the first video I did when I started to harden my little seedlings off. Hope it helps or amuses someone! :) Don’t forget, Gardening is therapy for the soul. For me at least...

    Cherry blossom out but not opening?

    Cherry 'Spire'
    Update – It’s opening! The rain and 70mph gusts seemed to shake them open…let’s hope it doesn’t shake them off. The Cherry blossom out but not opening, it’s as if it’s growing inside an invisible tube. You can see the full length of the petals with no ou...

    Unusually warm day today, so it was great to peek into my seed-starting room and find a bunch of tiny new seedlings — first of the year.

    Ancho Gigantea Sprouting and 2011 Backyard Vegetable garden
    I am very happy these sprouted. It took a long time, I think because of not being warm enough due to not being on the window sill shelf.
