After the lovely weather we had over Easter, we were hoping the weekend after would be just as nice… unfortunately it wasn’t!
The seeds arrived by the end of the week, just in time for planting – we hadn’t expected Storm Hannah to also be here though, so Saturday ended up being a bit of a washout!
Sunday afternoon wasn’t too bad though so we set about marking the areas for the different varieties of wildflowers that we’d ordered.
The plan was to have a carpet of Borage with wildflowers woven in between. However, we decided to just have separate areas instead.
So, we have sections for Borage, Cosmos, Rainbow wildflower mix.
We also have an area of ornamental grasses which will grow around the old tree stump among the Daffodils.
We’ve moved the bird pole with the feeders up to the other end of the garden, hoping that will keep the birds at the far end away from the seeds! We’ll just have to wait and see what comes up now… the worst part of this whole gardening malarkey for me!
