Spring In Adam's Garden Lincolnshire


By julia


It’s now officially Spring! March 20th marked the official Spring Equinox but as a gardener I tend to wait for Mother Nature and I can say, according to the garden flora and fauna, Spring has most definitely sprung.

The plants in the garden and nursery are looking much happier now and are enjoying the warmer weather and longer daylight hours. The perennials which never fail to amaze me are pushing up tender green growth from under the bare soil. After a very long wait I have daffodils in flower. The vibrant yellow is enough to cheer even the grumpiest gardener. Suddenly there is new life everywhere.

I have been watching the bees buzzing groggily around the garden foraging for nectar from the early flowers. The birds have been singing for weeks and are busy collecting bits of moss and twigs from around the garden.

With Spring I have been busy sowing seed in the greenhouse, it’s actually been warm enough to germinate tomatoes! I have also been busy pricking out thousands of Dierama plants. The strong seedlings have already started to form bulbs and look exactly like fresh baby spring onions. The Greenhouse has a lovely sweet, fresh,green, mossy smell which I wish I could bottle. There is new growth everywhere and the promise of a wonderful year in the garden.

It's a beauty - I planted a white one last year, and I'm hoping for some flowers this summer. :-))
