On Sunday, I managed to fit in enough time to tidy up my greenhouse and prepare for the coming spring/summer.
I went to the garden centre to buy plants and bird feed! I also bought some larger, more substantial pots, a hanging basket and some seeds. I cleared up my veg patch and planted some flowers in my wildlife garden. Another exciting project is that me and my dad are converting our tree house into a bird watching platform!
Here is my new and improved bird feeding station! I am feeding the birds niger seed, mixed bird seed, peanuts, fat balls, suet blocks and mealworms! This huge range of feed attracts a similarly huge selection of birds including goldfinches, great spotted woodpecker, long-tailed tits and dunnocks!
I planted two strawberry plants in my new hanging basket positioned in my greenhouse.
I bought two green troughs from the garden centre. These sturdy pots will hopefully last a lot longer than the cheap plastic pots I normally buy.
|Two sweet chillies|
|A selection of peppers, and red lettuce.|
|Two tomatoes I bought from the garden centre.|
|Two tomatoes I bought from a village fair.|
|In these four containers I am growing herbs such as basil and parsley.|
|I took a slab up from the greenhouse floor to plant my grapevine.|
I planted some flowers in my wildlife garden which will start to grow over the next few weeks.
