Tidy Up In The Tunnel

Omphalodes Verna or Creeping Forget Me Not

Omphalodes Verna or Creeping Forget Me Not

Sort of lazy day as the weather is quite wild, also I had to go shopping to feed the troops. Spent a couple of hours this afternoon in the tunnel removing any wizened leaves from the many pots of heuchera, potting up one Bishop of Llandaff dahlia, two Nuit d'Ete dahlia with luck they will grow, the Nerine Bowdenni bulbs that came out of the south flower bed are now potted into a large plastic pot that fits inside the large Bill and Ben terracotta ones. Had a general tidy up outside all the pots of used compost from the tomatoes emptied into a large hessian meal sack it will get added into some of the flower beds probably the woodland corner that I hope to make or into the east bed when I have the lysmachia eradicated. Much to wild here to work in the east bed today although it was 10c, discovered small pot of daffodils in the tunnel in the tidy up now planted into a gap in the south bed.

I think it was definitely a day for tidying, and planning.

Same weather here all day too. Its just a day for indoors. Sounds like you still got a good bit done though.

I got 2 different plants of omphalodes last year from a friend, one is plain blue and the other one is omphalodes cappadocica "Starry Eyes", both are lovely ground cover plants.

Were at a horse show again this morning, weather was lovely there, but just as we were getting ready to come home, it started opening, Had planned on hitting the garden when we got home, but weather was miserable here all evening. I am off for the next week, mid-term break so hope to get a good bit done then.
