After the continual rain this last weekend, I decided that getting the crocosmia that have regrown near my favourite rose bush out was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.
Unfortunately, there are a few which are growing very close to the fir tee and digging them out would probably entail lifting the fennel as well. So, if I am to get them out, it will need to wait until the fennel goes in the herb garden I hope to establish in the spring.
On the other hand, I think I might have noticed something which may be a pleasant surprise on the other side of the tree.
I say ‘might’ because the green shoots could be something along the lines of Spanish bluebells, which like the apple tree think it is spring already (haven’t they noticed the December gloom?). On the other hand, I’m rather hoping they could be garlic which didn’t sprout last year.
