My first seedlings have appeared after just 1 week. Lettuces, Kohl Rabi and Kale are all up. That is exciting.

I put down the rest of my gravel surrounding my pond and neatened the edges. Looks much better.

I spent a lot of the day planting the perennials into the main bed which had sat in pots all winter.

  • The Lavandula stoechas was pulled out and binned. We both decided it was time to go. Didn’t look great and didn’t look like it was going to get any better.

I also planted up a new Rhubarb plant Rheum × hybridum ‘Timperley Early’ in a pot which was now spare to get going.


  • There are some lovely Crocus coming up in the woodland bed. Not sure what they are or if I put them in!
  • More Crocus tommasinianus ‘Whitewell Purple’ are coming up in the lawn. Quite a lot now!
  • Something likes eating my Daffodil flowers.
  • Most of the winter veg has been eaten by slugs. There are going to be a LOT of slugs hiding amongst the crevices.
