Garden Updates: April

posted in: The Garden 2022 | 10

April is finishing and as usual it has been a busy month in the garden. So much growth to see each day I go outside. The last few days had temperatures in the double digits and it was lovely to get outside and start the garden cleanup and decorating.

the Egyptian walking onions are doing really well in several spots in the garden. I moved a couple of them that were growing in an unexpected spot. I also still have lots of little bulblets from last year so I can start some new plants and then share them with other gardens.

Over the winter I painted 3 new cottage rocks for Rockville (lower right corner) and I started to put them all on display in the honeysuckle garden. Over the winter they all get stored in the garage to limit damage.

One of the big metal tubs has been cleared out of old plants and replaced with some new hens and chicks. These are hardy plants and can be transplanted at any time in spring. I have a big farmyard garden full of them.

Daffodils are so hardy, and after being coated in snow a week or so ago they are now in full bloom.

Considering how much rain and snow we had during the month, the gardens are very dry. The trillium are showing promise of white blooms soon. Hoping this wonderful weather continues into May.

I’m sharing these views of the garden with Through my Garden Gate and Mosaic Monday.

    It’s amazing how quickly the garden changes at this time of year and it’s lovely to see it coming back to life and old friends reappear. Have a lovely weekend. x

      April is a favourite time of mine, so much growth in the garden. And of course I love getting all the garden decorations out.
