garlic beds & spring prep


The small bed of garlic we planted in late autumn (November) are doing well.  We also planted two giant garlic in a mini-plot.  These provide a flash of hopeful green growth in the midst of bare patches that have been turned over and topped up with manure.   Little patches of self-seeded forget me not also add bursts of green with light blue blossom.

The big guy tidied up the canes and supports on the raspberry bed.


And the potted cyclamen is again adding a huge splash of colour to the upper terrace – and also a tasty treat to early emerging bees.
