Today was another grey and dark day.

But I was able to work in the garden. I cleaned up and extended the border behind the garage to make room for the Osmanthus x burkwoodii and a hydrangea. They should have a bit more cover there from cold weather. I added a lot of compost and mulch to give them a good start. While I was digging up the border I found a daylily that I lifted, divided and planted again.

And those Iris germanica got a new place at the front of the border. I hope they will get a bit more sun in that position. The soil should be perfect for the Iris. Lots of sand and compost.

The red blooming buddleja davidii on the right, got a nice pruning. I wonder if the Osmanthus is a bit too close to the buddleja… We will see in the summer.

The Osmanthus is the green shrub near the middle.

I also worked on the herb spiral and on our lonely mountain. Was a rather busy day.

  1. Glückwunsch zur Kräuterspirale! Und dazu noch das bienenfreundliche Blumenbeet – man kann sich richtig vorstellen, was da im Sommer los sein wird. Ihr seid um euer großes Experimentierfeld zu beneiden. Ich hätte in unserem Reihenhausgarten auch noch Aufgaben – z.B. eine Tamariske auslichten, die sich über den Sommer zum Struwwelpeter entwickelt hat. Hab bloß leider keine Zeit – berufliche Verpflichtungen, Weihnachtsvorbereitungen… Viel Spaß euch weiterhin mit euren Schützlingen! Grüße aus Bargteheide (5°, grauer Himmel, ächz) Uschi

    • Ich bin nur froh das es den Winter gibt. Sonst würde ich mit dem Aufräumen im Experimentierfeld garnicht mehr hinterher. 😉

      Unseren Tamarisken hab ich mich noch immer nicht getraut zu schneiden. 😀
