First impressions of garden
Posted Thu 22 December 2016 in garden
It's the day after the shortest day of the year. I now have my first garden although I am not actually moving in until after Christmas.
Even though it is sunny the whole garden is in shadow, the houses are arranged so that they could be blocking the light in many different directions. The garden faces north west, so I am expecting that there will be sun in the afternoon and evening later in the year.
I have a bag of bluebell bulbs that I bought a couple of months ago, so I plant them now as the bulbs don't last that long apparently. The ground is very wet and heavy, one hole I dig fills with water and it is not very deep.
I'm a little bit disappointed, although I console myself this is going to be the very worst time and clearly things do grow here.
