I am feeling that the season is ‘early’ this year. I mean that, for some reason, the soil seems warm enough to plant/sow into now. Looking back at my sowing journals for the past four years I’ve done nothing until the end of March/beginning of April… but this year feels different.
I am going to go with my intuition and will direct sow some peas and radish and rocket and maybe some spinach. And I’ll get some trays filled with seed compost and put in the tomatoes and tomatillos.
This could all be a huge mistake!
Narcissus ‘Tete a Tete’ and unknown Snowdrop variety:
Daphne odora aureomarginata: The Breton drizzle and low cloud that has been dampening both my spirits and the garden, finally stopped. The storms and high winds of the other day are almost forgotten and Spring flowers take centre stage. And today has been a beautiful day. Lots done in the garden. All fine in my world!
Hellebores have never been a particular favourite of mine, but this one was -50% last year, so I bought it just because…and I rather like it. So, this is the beginning of Balanou Gardener. I had to start somewhere!
