The first week of June has been all about gorgeous blooms working together to create a tapestry of colour which seems to bursting out everywhere.
After so many weeks of warm, dry weather, the garden and I were doing a happy dance this week to see some rainfall! It is amazing how the combination of rainfall followed by sunshine really makes everything in the garden so much more lush!
A walk round the garden this week in between rain and 50mph winds, reveals signs of great hope: buds and bulbs fighting their way to emerge! Amidst the bleak mid-winter, these pops of green are quite simply a joy to behold!
Companion planting is an organic method of growing two or more different plants together which will have mutual benefits to each other.
This is just my favourite time of the year! Leaves are unfurling and buds are swollen, ready to burst! It's the time of year when you can miss the beauty of the garden if you but blink!
If you had to choose just six plants for your garden that you could not be without, which six plants would you choose? These suggestions are just a bit of banter between gardeners but these top choices might inspire you to plant some in your garden!
With the positively Spring-like weather we've been having recently in Glasgow, signs of hope are starting to abound everywhere! So that's the theme for this week's #SixonSaturday: signs of Spring!
