Gardening Catch Up April

By Angela @daisyangel1
So not only has it been some time since my last blog post it has been months since I shared a gardening related post. I am still, yes still, recovering from my chest infection, I am making progress however I find the unpredictability of the fatigue impossible to make any plans - so I don't!

The gardening springing into life has been a delight to see, and has made my green fingers itch for the want of seed sowing! I sorted through my seed tins a few weeks ago from the comfort of the kitchen table.  I may be a little behind with my seed sowing but at least I have a planting plan.
Forget Me Nots April Garden

For the last few months my sister has been very active in the garden and has happily asked for me to add to her to do list - luckily for me.  The two raised vegetable beds have been dug out and had new compost added, ready for a bumper year of carrots, kale, beans and courgettes. The greenhouse is usually my domain, but when you need a little help, you need a little help, so my sister kindly set up all my seed trays and compost. I literally strolled from the kitchen door into the greenhouse and sowed my vegetable and flower seeds - my green fingers satisfied.

It is a few weeks later and the Saturday of Easter weekend and I have picked up my camera and taken a stroll into the garden. There are photographs galore!   
  • The seeds in the greenhouse are mostly growing well, there are some tender plants including the sweet peas from Sarah Raven being protected from those chilly nights. 
  • The blossoms on the plum tree have vanished, the pear tree blossom is past it's best but the blossom on the apple trees is just bursting open. 
  • The Acer is now in full leaf, the Bluebells are flowering and the fronds of the ferns are unfurling. 
  • The Copper Beech tree, which dominates the bottom of the garden is a week away from being in leaf.
