The continuing battle against the unwanted

With spring making its mark on the garden in unexpected ways (eg tulips popping up now!), I was curious to see what was going on right at the back. And the little trip up there bore fruit, so to speak.

The photos may not be especially revealing but the beady-eyed may see the return of the ground elder. Storm Ciara or no tomorrow, this will be removed.

I’m also not so chuffed to see crocosmia, so this will be coming out as well.

On a far brighter note, the day lilies I planted out last year, after sowing them indoors in 2018, are starting to show their new shoots. And perhaps they might even flower this summer?

I’m equally delighted to see the return of the wild garlic. The ordinary garlic crop last summer was not so good and so we have almost run out of it. The wild variety will therefore be most welcome in due course.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. I love wild garlic – I must go and see if mine is showing yet. This spring is totally topsy turvy so it might be early.

      It certainly is a topsy-turvy month! I hope you’re not badly affected by the storm today. Generally, I’m a little cynical when there are weather warnings but the wind for up about an hour ago here and it is quite wild.
