The March Garden
All the roses have starting putting out new growth and the three clematis are all developing their first buds. The white one will be the first to flower but I don't think the burgundy and the pink ones will be far behind this year.
I've placed my first plant order for 2023 and will soon be the happy recipient of some more crocosmia. I have a few of the crocosmia lucifer (red) already and have ordered some more to add height and colour to the other side of the garden. I've also ordered a few crocosmia George Davidson (yellow). The yellow ones were an impulse purchase but I'm not regretting it yet! I fancy having some bright splashes of yellow in this year's summer garden.
M was on board about trying to grow some edibles in the hanging baskets this year. We've agreed on one of the trailing tomato variety in maybe a couple of pots but that's as far as we've got so far and that's not a definite. I'm trying to decide how much I'll miss the flowers so it may end up being three baskets of trailing fuchsias, two of cherry tomatoes and one of raspberries. The main issue is the watering with the tomatoes and raspberries as the baskets are always greedy for water and I have planned three other trips away during the summer so it's a lot to ask someone to take on the daily watering task.
