in the new garden ... where there seem to be as many slugs and snails as in the old one - if not more!

27th June - a check through the pots and carrier bags revealed remarkably few casualties - the Papaver, all but one of the Californian Irises, plus Digitalis parviflora (but that bag may produce seedlings if I am lucky). They were weeded (I do not want that Geum from the old garden), trimmed of any dead leaves and replaced to continue their wait.

27th August - weeded and tidied again - and, so far as I can see, no further losses.

22nd September - the plants for the right hand front garden were planted at last. The ones for the left hand side still looked healthy - so did the snails until I squashed them.

4th October - and finally the plants were planted in the left hand front garden. The back garden looks so much tidier without the serried ranks of carrier bags.

16th October - mulched the right hand side front garden with bark - a mucky job.
In evening, gave up the idea of finding it locally and ordered the Chusquea from junglegiants.co.uk.

19th October - Chusquea arrived safely and looking very well. Planted immediately to take advantage of the rain. Now I just have to get the gravel to mulch that side.

Is it just mine or have other gardens gone mad? The Clematis alpina bought in June with no buds has started flowering and Clematis Freckles has large buds about to open. Both Pieris have flower buds that certainly don't look as if they are going to wait for Spring and Leucojum 'Graveteye Giant' has well grown leaves (Muscari leaves have been up for ages). Rosmarinus Fota Blue (which usually started flowering in January in my old garden) has been flowering for a week.

1st April 2006 - with the cold dry Winter most things did wait... and wait. It was quite a novelty having to water things in January. However, the rest of the mulching got done, I had ample opportunity to address each weed on a personal basis as it appeared, and eventually the weather got more spring-like, with plenty of rain. So at last I am discovering what most of the bulbs are.

July 2006 - The work in the garden did not bother a rather pretty grasshopper - young and stupid? Luckily he left before the cats went out.

A few discoveries -

According to the neighbour over the road, the tree stump was once a Magnolia; because it always rained when the tree bloomed, destroying the flowers and making a mess, they cut it down. If true - what a shame. The Camellias also must have made a mess, but they left them!

According to another neighbour, squirrels bury the peanuts in the back garden. I have never seen them but apparently she has.

Arabis is very difficult to get rid of. I have more or less eliminated it from the back garden but it kept reappearing all over the front garden, both sides.

The thing that kept appearing everywhere over front and back gardens, with very sturdy roots, turned out to be Mirabilis jalapa with yellow flowers. One flowered next door so I took photos and asked all my friends. (My books were not helpful - they all showed the red flowered form, so I did not recognise it.) I now have future homes for any more that appear.
