The neglected garden.

Tuesday, June 03, 2014




Yep. The title of this post sums my garden up at the moment. Neglected. There's far too many weeds that need pulling, dead plants and leaves that need tidying. Not to mention hedges that need a good haircut. Oh so much to do and so little time. I need a big kick up the backside to get it done. Gardener wanted. Apply within. 

On the plant side of things it's looking nice. I'm now past that awkward stage between spring flowers dying off and summer flowers blooming. The poppies we had last year are making a return and it won't be too much longer until they are in full bloom.






My potted plants are going quite well. I've had to put slug and snail pellets down to stop those critters from munching on my plants. It's working alright so far. Everything is growing nicely and I can't wait until they bloom so I can see what they are (stupid me didn't write down what was where!) 

We should be getting a new bench soon so I can't wait. I'm hoping in will make the wasted space by my backdoor looking more like this. I can't wait to make it look pretty!

Let me know if you have any blog posts about your garden. I need all the inspiration I can get right now!

  1. I love gardening when I get the chance it is my stress release. I love dancing ladies your buds are just about to come out. But my favourite are Aliums they stand so tall. Lucy

    1. I did have an alium last year. I'm hoping that it comes back again!

  2. My garden is definitely more than a little neglected - it's not in a fit state to show just yet!

  4. Lovely photographs again (even if you're feeling you're gardens a little neglected it still looks wonderful to me!). I love the fuchsia pictures, there's something so beautiful about that flower!

  5. Really lovely photos! The problem is, april/may is such a rush to get everything going properly! I never manage to plant everything I intended! Then june comes along and everythings growing like mad and the grass never looks tidy for more than a day and then things start drying up...it's a constant battle! No matter what you decide to do, make sure you sit outside and enjoy those sunny days, thats what it's all about :)
