So, I have my next 2 RHS exams on Monday, so I will be preparing for soil exam and pests and diseases so it’s going to be a quick one this week.
- Dutch iris
A bit of a strange colour combination on this one but I rather like it.
2. Dutch Iris
This is the more standard colour. They are scattered along the border. Between a few different varieties of irises I now get to enjoy them through more of the seasons.
3. Pyracantha orange glow
The pyracantha is flowering well. I only added this recently so it’s still rooting. The seagulls pulled it out a few times so I’m glad to see it flowering. Hopefully lots of berries for the birds to enjoy.
4. Climbing rose Scarlet Paul
This rose is now well established and the training has gone well as we now have flowers all along a good section of fence. Not bad for £2 supermarket climber.
5. Poppy Black Swan
I’ve grown these from seed from Sarah Raven. I fancied something different as I just have the one form of poppy that seems to return each year that is a large dark poppy with smooth edges so I thought these would be a nice addition alongside.
6. Forget-me-not clearing
The forget-me-nots are going to seed so it’s time to scatter a few so they return and clear to make room for other plants coming through. There will be many more wheelbarrows to go. Just doing a few each day.
So that’s it for this week. Back to studying. I need a bit more of a focus on weeds and making sure I’ve got the Latin names in my head. Wish me luck!
