Garden Notes – Keep it Going

Garden Club The Villager

I love going to Chelsea but this year it was not the exciting place it usually is. I only really liked one garden, The Silk Road, that the pundits talked down, while as for the best in show!! It was supposed to be a quarry in Malta with native plants. It was the tidiest quarry you have ever seen with all the stones cut to the same size and laid out in rows. ...

Garden Notes – Frost!

Garden Club The Villager

What a shock that late frost was. My hydrangeas leaves are destroyed and I wonder if we will see any flowers this year. Perhaps this is the time to buy more of the ones that flower on new wood as well as old. The Endless Summer range will do this. Hostas are limp and even the really tough bergenias suffered. Otherwise the blossom has been superb. The poor vineyards have lost most of their crop. ...

Farm Notes

The Villager

The hoped for rain has arrived and crops, grass, flowers and planted vegetables will be transformed. In April we recorded about 18 mm early in the month from a Saturday storm and then a few millimetres just before the month’s end. Now the plants have the moisture in the rooting zone and will take up the nutrients. The warmer days of March and early April resulted in crop growth stages being about 12 days ahead of a normal season but the cold winds of late April slowed growth to a normal year. Growth stages are determined by dissecting the plants and identifying the growth stage from sometimes tiny embryonic leaves or ears – patience and a good blade are required. ...
