How Does Your Garden Grow? - Week 15

Wow the weeks are really flying by!

Hubby has now marked out where the raised beds for the vegetables are going. We now have the all of the wood that we need to start building. I am sure building will start this weekend.

The seedlings are really coming on and we have had even more growth this week.

The daffodils are now starting to die off, but they are being replace by tulip buds and peonies. The cherry trees down the bottom of the garden are becoming full of flowering blossom. I was disappointed to see that my beautiful magnolia has lost nearly all of its petals, however I was delighted and intrigued to see that it has new buds which look to be full of purple petals. So I am excited to see what they look like once they open.

This is how our garden has grown this week...

Marking out where the raised beds will go
We have covered the grass where the raised
bed will go with cardboard. This should kill off
the grass and make it easier to dig over.
Onion seedlings

Cabbage seedlings

Beetroot seedlings

We now have 4 cucumber seedlings

Sweet peas
New magnolia flowers starting to come out

Clematis bud

Tulips waiting to open

Now that the weather is warming up we are
opening up the cold frame during the day.
One of my favourite flowers in our garden is
definitely the peony. I love the beautiful
large red flowers, I was pleased to see
the buds are coming!
I am sharing this post with Mammasaurus' How Does Your Garden Grow? pop over and take a look at Mammasaurus' beautiful photographs and see how other bloggers gardens have grown.

  7. I have a love of peonies too! What a lot of work going in to your garden at the moment - I can't wait to see those tulips erupt into flower! So jealous of all of you with seedlings poking up at the mo!

  8. Yay!! Another veggie grower on #HDYGG :) Good luck with everything.

  9. ooh, I'm interested to see if the cardboard helps with digging over the grass… we made our raised beds last weekend and just dug straight into the grass… it really was such hard work! Peonies are my absolute favourite flower and ours are in bud too, I can't wait for them to open! x
