Bedding Out Begins For 2012
With the rise in temepratures forecast for the rest of the week and the threat of a late frost diminishing, Ali gets the go ahead to start ripping out the winter pot displays and to start planting out the first of the plants grown for the summer display. By the end of the day 90 small plants, Cosmos, Cleome, Antirrhinum, Panicum and Tagetes have their place in the borders.
In the newly created heeling in area in the nursery, the architectural plants from a few of the winter pots have been planted for safe keeping during the summer. A robin kept her company and greatly received any bugs and worms disturbed during the digging.
