What's Going On In Your Garden?

Now that the sunnier days have arrived, I have made all sorts of plans for my tiny patch of a garden.

 

I started making plans for the spring, months ago and have now finally got started.

 

This is what greeted me a couple of weeks ago and today I planted 4 plug plants of ground covered and knackered myself so will have to try again another day :)

Sunny?

 

It's been frosty and wet here for a week!

 

Mind you, February my April-May flowering Victoria Plum flowered.  I live in dread of a heavy hail shower. I'll loose all my plums and my cherries, which are almost done flowering.  

 

The weeds are taking over, and it's raining so I can't get rid of them.  Not those weeds.  Meadow buttercup, horsetail, brambles, wild roses, bindweed, dandelions (a couple of chaffinch help quite a bit there) and dock - which gets to five feet tall if given space.  Mine have space.  

 

Ive bedding perennials to put out but I have to clear the weeds yet.  It's yellow clay here, fork-bending stuff.  

 

Think I might have viral conjunctivitis.

@Happymama Most of my weeds are gone now but I only have a tiny patch to work with.

 

I zap weeds with vinegar in the evening then wait for a bit of rain to soften the ground slightly then use a hand held rotavating tool to loosen the weeds then pull them out by hand,

 

I'm now waiting for a huge bag of all purpose compost to turn up so I can spread it over the patchy beds to break down the lumps

My weeds have gone MENTAL.  Tackling them tomorrow.  Dock, dandelion, meadow clover, horsetail, cleavers (sticky jacks), nettles, grass ... my front garden is nearly a food deep in them.  Weed suppression measures coming.

Same here but mostly on the grass. I soak the weeds with vinegar in the evening then have been digging them up the next morning. Bald patches have been raked over and covered in grass seed. I reckon this will go on all summer, but hopefully we'll have some grass to see next spring :)
