I split 3 plants up into 19 more strawberry plants, I’m still unsure of the names but I know one of the plants was a white variety as I grew them from seed a few years ago.
That takes me to about 35 plants. I need approximately 60 altogether to fit into my vertical planters I am making .
I do plan on getting a variety of different coloured strawberries ready to grow next year.
I’ve also brought my grapevine indoors to bring it on over winter.
I was also given a wheelbarrow, it needs a bit of doing up, so another project to keep me going. It’s in full working order, just real flaky paintwork.
So after picking up the downpipes on Tuesday and cutting the holes into one of them, I decided to start potting up all the strawberry plants I have in the garden.
This is from just the ones randomly around the garden –
These where the ones with little to no root so have put them in water and am hoping for the best –
Tomorrow or Saturday will be the trough I was given by my aunt, I’ll pot the shoots first then go from there –
My neighbor is having a patio layed so when I seen this pallet on top I had to have it, it will make an excellent raised bed –
To me the love for gardening probably started out from my grandparents. Both my parents see gardening as a pain so I didn’t get my love for it off them. My grandfather used to have his own allotments but due to him getting older, has had to give it up and grows mainly in the garden. Here are a few pictures from the garden –
He has gone a little bit tomatoe and runner bean mad, but as he says “only grow what you eat”. The sunflowers are all my grandmothers, she is the flower grower of them both.
I hope you have enjoyed this post on my grandparents garden.
Even though we have had horrendous rain today, saved me doing any watering mind, I went out and finished re-potting and putting seeds in. As promised I have gathered a list of the names of plants I have got, along with some photos.
This is what the garden currently looks like. The grass has only just been cut, hence the deadness.
Here is the £10 greenhouse form Wilkinson’s to get me started.
The Grape vine, Geraniums and Lavender.
And closer photos from inside the greenhouse.
