Lyn and Malcolms Garden Blog
Yesterday I started pruning the Clematis, it takes a while
to do all 100+ of them. I did manage to get back out again this afternoon after
the rain stopped and prune a few more.
Yes I know it is Christmas Eve, but the weather over the Christmas and New year
period is not supposed to be very good. I can't st around watching Christmas TV
for too long.
Another job to do in the garden is to replace the broken plant labels, before
the plants get growing too big.
Happy Christmas to all who may be reading this.
Christmas in Lyn and Malcolms Garden (well Lyns really).
Lots of rain yesterday with flooding in some places, but
today it was quite sunny but it felt very damp outside.
I can't remember having so much condensation in the greenhouse as we have had so
far this winter.
Just a few pictures taken in the garden this afternoon.
Phylostachys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' in the
Buds on Clematis anshunensis
Baby seedlings of
Eryngium bourgatii 'Graham Stuart Thomas' sown in
Narcissus 'Martinette' leaves showing already.
Snowdrop leaves just appearing.
Gerbera 'Everlast' series in the conservatory.
One of the Bougainvillia in the conservatory
flowering, even though we only heat the conservatory to plus 9c
December so far has had 10 frosts, last year in the
whole of December we only had 4.
I think all the tender plants from the Exotic garden are coping alright in their
winter, protected quarters.
The seed of Eryngium bourgatii 'Graham Stuart Thomas' that we sowed straight
from the plant in October, have germinated well, in a seed tray of gritty soil,
covered with a clear plastic sheet left out in the open.
There is no sign of any of the Thalictrum sown at a similar time to the Eryngium.
Last weekend I tipped out all the Lilies that are in pots, removed all the soil
from the bulbs, and replanted them in new soil. We do this every year in case
there are any Vine Weevil eating the roots. We didn't find any this year.
Just a couple more days till the shortest day, then we can look forward to
Snowdrops and Daffodils, I can't wait to see things wake up in the garden again.
