PLants On The Move...................
Where did the Weekend Go to ....!!!
I had every intention of writing this on Friday morning but the sad thing is the day just flew past without any quiet time and there hasn't been any since. Suddenly there was a multitude of trucks delivering trees and plants that all had to get put away before the weekend and then the day and weekend was gone.
Once replanted a large tree or shrub may need to be anchored with a solid stake or with guy ropes and pegs until its roots have regrown and the plant can again hold inself in the ground.
So if there is a tree that you need to move so that you can fit in another plum ot two or even a peach, nectarine, apple or pear then get onto it and do it now.

NEW IN THIS WEEK
White Hellebores, I just love white Winter roses and in the pics above are two different species of white winter rose. The first one is Ice queen and is an orientalis form. So often with seedling winter roses you get quite a lot of variances in the flower but these must be 'tissue made' to get such a uniform plant and so icily white. Niger is the other species and White magic is the cultivar and these are just as gorgeous though probably prefer a drier position.
Daffodil Tete et tete A fav of mine. I just love these miniature Daffodils and they lend themselves to be grown in a pot. Enjoy them on a table outside where you can see them through the window. Hyacinths are also pretty and stunningly fragrant. I would haver to have them inside where there fragrance will fill the room.
Asparagus. Sweet succulent and tender and of course you can grow your own. Now you have to remember that Asparagus is a true perennial and so needs its own spot in the garden. I reckon that if you have the space make a dedicated Asparagus patch. Plant the crowns now to get well establishe before the summer. As with most perennials the crown will get bigger yielding more spears as the years go past. They love lots of food so feed them
We need the space and so these Teucrium cones must go. They are big chunky plants that will be perfect as a feature in either a pot or in the garden. They were $120 but out they go for only $20.00. Sorry but they are too large to be couriered so pick up only.Hope that all had a fabulous school holidays, Weather was good though today was a tad wet. If you are thinking of making some shifts in the garden then now is the time to get onto it as July is just marching past. Have a great week.
Cheers, Lloyd and Harry and the team
