Growth at last!

Signs of growth in the vegetable, fruit and shrub garden, spring has sprung. Still, mustn't be complacent as we all know Mother Nature always has the last laugh!!

Soon, it will be April and Beechgrove Garden will begin. Monty Don started Gardener's World last Friday so all is right in the world.

Herewith some green bits - radish seedlings under cover - lettuce and beetroot still to show:

Leeks from last winter along with my mini compost bin:
One of three rhubarbs:
Summer dwarf raspberries with alpine strawberries in the background:
Hydrangea outside the kitchen window:

A few green shoots are also showing on my gooseberries. Early pears and apples have swollen flower buds on them.

Well done to Neal and Ken Skupski for winning their maiden ATP 500 tour title in Mexico.

  2. What a joy to see the garden coming back to life. I am ready to get going on mine but the weather is so very changeable still.

    1. Luckily the seeds are under cover making the soil a lot warmer.

  4. Isn't it lovely seeing all the buds developing and plants re-appearing, I especially love seeing the rhubarb leaves coming back, I'll have to buy a crown for the new garden for sure. The birdsong this morning was amazing on the riverbank.

    1. Birdsong is certainly increasing. There is now a green haze appearing along the roads which is lovely to see.

  5. It's lovely to see the garden waking up and seedlings showing the first sign of green. Summer will be here before we know it.
