Could it possibly be true? After months of snow, frost, rain, darkness and general weathery unpleasantness, QuirkyPig woke today to glorious sunshine and a much improved temperature. Of course, this meant rushing out to the garden to get some more seeds sown and a blueberry bush planted up.
Currently in the propagator:
Veg/fruit/herbs : 2 varieties of tomato / basil / yellow crystal cucumber / tabasco chilli pepper
Flowers: coleus / actinidia / blue chrysanthemum
This is my first attempt at cultivating blueberries - apparently they like an acid (ericaceous) soil and to be watered with rain water, rather than tap water. Currently, it must be said, my two plants are not looking too impressive. Think twig, rather than bush. Hopefully, they are just dormant, rather than deceased...
