Who knew that pests and diseases could be so interesting?
Collectively we had varying degrees of success with the Dahlia tubers.
Some of us had managed to cultivate many new shoots on the tubers, and, hence, some cuttings to make new plants...always a good thing!
With May being one of the busiest months in the garden, there was plenty to chat about in respect of what to do, notice and appreciate this month in the garden.
The sun shone warmly and brightly for The Garden Design Workshop yesterday.
Different garden styles were discussed, along with border planning and planting, aspect, colour, texture and budget. Garden mood boards were made to help keep us focused on our style, and they provided a few surprises regarding individual style preferences.
Morning pastries and a light lunch kept the energy levels buoyant and the laughter flowing.
The week ahead looks fairly packed too. Lots of good things though. I'll report back next weekend.
Wishing you a good week ahead in your garden. 🌸
I started gardening aged three, helping my father in our family garden. My passion has 'grown' from this point onwards.
