I thought i was getting better but today i have gone backwards, feeling tired and worn out again. I had plans to do a little more gardening but having to change plans.
I have taken photos of what i have done and what i already have growing. I am going to update my garden journal with how each plant is doing and any other important information i may need for next year.
One of my favourite plants that i have is a tree my daughter bought me when i first started gardening back in 2017. We called him Groot after a character from Guardians of the Galaxy.
I have kept Groot wrapped up just in case of anymore frost plus I keep a layer of lining covering the base so Groot doesn’t get flooded with all the rain. He never lets me down coming back stronger every year.
The next one is a collage of my Fruit tree’s, I planted these last year after receiving them for Mothers day and Birthday presents. I have a Tayberry, Raspberry, Blueberry & Blackberry. They didn’t provide me with fruit last year really not sure they will this year, i will continue to look after them until they hopefully do. I also covered there soils with liner to stop the rain from drowning them.
Next is another of my favourites, this one i grew from a seed the 1st year i started gardening back in 2017 Buddlia, these are a favourite of Bee’s & Butterflies. They produce beautiful flowers. I am hoping this one grows me more flowers this year.

I also have 3 pots of Begonias that I grew last year, they all seem to be coming back this year with lovely green leaves.

My main priority this year has been getting my Bee & Butterfly corner set up with Bee & Butterfly houses and having enough space to grow a few Lavender plants. I set up the corner first then added the plants so the Bee’s & Butterflies don’t have far to fly. I have made a Lavender collage below.
My corner is now ready for any visitors that may be flying, maybe a couple may want to make up home in one of my houses, i have supplied night lights to help brighten up there corner at night.
Now I move onto more new additions for this year:
I have added a few Vegetables to this year.
Plus more Flowers:
They are all starting to mount up, i now have a few pots set up outside.

I have Carrots, Sweet pea & Mixed Annuals growing indoors, they are ready to be moved into biodegradable pots which will leave me with lots of space to start my next batch. I am filling the pots but still have rearrange the garden putting them in there positions for the Summer. That will be getting done next weekend as long as the weather improves.
