Well it's that time again so here are the pictures of my "2018 bare canvas" I just spent the last 2 days planting out the majority of bedding plants.I still have to buy and plant some Dahlia,Geranium and Lobelia plus maybe a couple of hanging baskets.The strawberries are nearly all from last year so I am expecting a bigger crop this year from the 28 plants with 2 new plants (early fruit)
First the Strawberries
Hopefully they will do well this year,several are last years plants and several are "runners" grown from last year
In the front garden I have stuck mainly with the same as last year with just a few colour changes.I had to plant a new Lavender as the old one succumbed to the frost.I will leave them for a few weeks before taking more pictures.
The back garden still needs a lot of work especially the water feature which suffered badly from the frost.But I tend to like keeping the work ongoing in this area as it is place to "relax".
Time to let nature take its course and add a helping hand when needed.I will of course be posting more as we start to get some colour and also will add a picture of my first "bowl of strawberries"
