April shower power


Old greenhouse panels and gaffer tape became a new cold frame in 10 minutes

The clover sown as green manures is flowering a gorgeous deep red

The apples trees are blossoming

The rhubarb leaves are looking a bit yellow. Does this mean they need nitrogen?


French bean seedlings planted out last week have not survived. Too cold? Too windy?

Raspberry and blackcurrant plants are too close together for the long term but are looking well for now

Dont know what to do with Angelica but its flourishing in the April showers

Trying to let the grass seed grow in the bare patches. Doesnt stop the foxes crapping everywhere!


There are just a few nettles around the place so we may as well try making a liquid plant feed. Just chopped and bruised nettles plus rain water in a dark place.
