Living green compost worm compost from Donegal
Finally bought Paper whites, which will flower in 6 weeks indoors for Christmas. The scent is to die for. Also decided on Purple and White (White dream &Negrita mix) Tulips for spring. After last years’ visit to Altamont Gardens in Carlow, I made a mental note to plant lots of Leucojum aestivium. Still have to plant Alliums. I want lots of them for next summer. Get them into the ground now. So on your bikes to the garden centres.
Great idea for someone who wants a gift for life.
Winter Flowering Clematis at its best
Too Much Sun!! Dalkey Garden School students on a visit to see some Autumn Colour
at the National Garden Exhibition Center.
Dalkey Garden School Autumn Visit to National Garden Exhibition Center. Had a great visit to Kilquade to view Autumn Colour.
Had a great visit to Kilquade to view Autumn Colour.
A bit late this year. I suppose there has to be a down side to our warm Autumn. Class visit really great. Had a look at their Bulbs for sale in the Garden Shop in Kilquade. Terrific selection. Get those Alliums in before they are gone!!
Only 2 more classes in this session.
Classes for Spring: Monday, Wednesday or Friday, commencing 26 January
Decided to Harvest the rest of my Potatoes today.
Not a great crop, though where I planted them not ideal either.
Very little water and rain!!
Well, at least I got some. Mulching for next year will be really important.
I mulched my Strawberries with Grulch and I was thrilled with the result.
After experiencing so many wet summers, I relaxed. Now I have suffered the
consequences. Autumn preparation is the key.
