For fruit, I'm having another go at cucamelons after they failed last year, have a selection of new strawberry plants which are flowering well, and the raspberries, currants and gooseberries are coming back with a vengeance. Some gooseberry twigs we pruned in the early spring and then randomly stuck in to support the clematis have even rooted and started producing flowers and tiny fruit. I never knew rooting cuttings could be so easy!
We have a few early tomatoes coming on the forced cherry plants, which will mean the girls are happy until the main crop ripens, but otherwise it's a waiting game for the produce.
The floral side of things is far more productive with a vast array of blooms to gaze on, and lots of bees buzzing happily about. I just hope everything looks as good when we get back from holiday...
To give us a hand in the mini garden we have been sent a selection of products from the new In the Garden with Charlie Dimmock range at Poundland. Amazing value items, all for just a pound. Head online or to your local store to see what bargains you can snap up!
