I wonder why I didn’t buy myself this bulb flower planter earlier? It took me 15 minutes to plant Daffodils today. There is a perfect day for gardening today – a bit cloudy and warm – +13 C. After lunch, it is supposed to rain according to the weather forecast. All that I need to do in the garden is plant the Tulips. Admittedly, I had Crocuses blooming so nicely last spring that I bought myself some more, and I plant those too in the second part of September. The Sedum, as you can see, continue to bloom, and the Scottish moss is also doing well.
It seems to me that this year is the end of my garden achievements. I planted Scottish moss, replanted Irises, and yellow and orange Daylilies. I think that’s all I could show you. Admittedly, I’ll still be planting Daffodils next week, also Tulips and new Crocuses (I’ve just bought them) in the second part of September, but that won’t be visible until spring.
This morning we had only +20 degrees Celsius (+32 yesterday). So I went straight to my garden to replant my yellow Daylily. When I dug them out, I was shocked at how many there were. I prepared the ground, dug out, picked out different small roots, poured granulated compost and dug again. Then I chose the plants with healthy tubers and young roots and planted them about 30 cm apart. I also planted three bushes together in another place to see which grows better. Immediately after planting, I watered them. In a couple of days, we’ll see how they’re doing.
And my Scottish moss does seem to have taken root, despite the heat. I’ve been watering it, though, so maybe that’s why, or perhaps it just likes it here.
I planted the Scotch moss today. I hope it will grow after three days of standing in water instead of on the ground. It’s a bit cooler – only +26 C degrees and working in the garden was pleasant. I didn’t water heavily as the root system was completely wet, and the forecast promised rain in the afternoon. I sprinkled granular compost under the roots to improve the soil. And look – I have sedum in bloom, which I brought to Warsaw from Lithuania. That is the only plant flowering in my garden now.
I planned to get a grass cover in my small garden. Unfortunately, I can’t sow typical lawn grass because of my two trees and lack of free space. After quite a long search, I found on the Internet what I was looking for and what was growing in our garden in Lithuania – Sagina Subulata or Irish moss, or Scottish moss. None of my acquaintances will be surprised by this choice, as they all know about my love of Scotland. I bought it, and I have this moss at home now, but I can’t plant it – it’s +33 Celsius degrees here. So I keep it in water, spray it constantly and wait for Monday when the weather forecast says rain and only +26 degrees. Even if the forecast does not come true, I will plant this moss on Monday.
These lilacs have been growing in the same place for more than ten years and are still flowering. Admittedly no longer as profusely as they used to. For this reason, I want to replant them at the end of summer. I don’t have another place for them, I will plant them in the same field, but I will divide and remove the old roots. We will see how they will flower next summer.
Green is a spring colour. So, only green with some white accents today in my little garden.
This year I have gorgeous daffodils in my little garden. Double-flowered daffodils are spectacular. The miniature narcissus’ are still blooming too. Now I am waiting for my tulips to bloom.
My little garden is white and clean and all covered by snow. Can you see these yellow points? They are my crocuses that are still in bloom. The temperature is on +, but the weather forecast for this night is unforgiving and promises -5. I hope this deep snow saves my crocuses, tulips, and daffodils.
