My daughter decided to grow some apple seeds some years ago (though I thought they pears…maybe they failed). Naturally, as little ones tend to do, she eventually lost interest and forgot all about them
I kept up with them and eventually planted them out in large garden pots…then I too eventually forgot about them and they got shunted round behind the garage. The pots even got cracked and partially broken in the course of neglect. And still they thrive
So now I think I’ll re-pot them and see how they go for another year before I put them in the ground still not sure if they’re apple or pear trees though
Right, whilst the sun still shines, I’m off out to feed the flower beds, specially the roses, before the rain comes tonight to help me wash it all in tonight
Then I’m gonna start planning on how to minimalise the gardens 'cos as much as I love my garden…my hip doesn’t neither my purse
Particularly the lower flower bed, no matter what plants I put down there, the only things that grow with any success are blue geraniums, grasses and weeds!
So I think I’ll split the blue geranium along that bed and put weed membrain and bark down on the bear patches and stand pots full of cheap annuals down there each year for a bit of instant colour
Besides, as much as I love my garden, there are lots of loves in my life which demand my time and attention more
