Let's have a look at it Lisa, what is the plant , Perhaps I can help with some care for it. Did you put holes in the watering can when you planted it.? Xx

I still have 2pots of last years crop of cob nuts left, I pick the cob nuts in August off the tree, roast them and then preserve in honey, they are so Morrish it is a Hugh fearnley-whittingstall recipe.

I'm glad you each enjoyed the tour, not really much to see in the way of plants yet really. We had been hoping to go to the plant nursery Easter weekend but they were closed so I don't know if we will have time to go this weekend. I had put off buying anything elsewhere until I'd been to the nursery because the plants are so much better there. I did buy some pots though, I found some square pots that fit over the fencing at the top of the new deck.

Looking forwards to seeing your garden when finished Louise, not that they are ever finished, always something else to plant or change

Linda our rhubarb isn't doing so well, not sure why, maybe the odd winter we had, last year it was better, saying that I only looked at the one plot and I think we have rhubarb in three places because my husband wanted to see where it grew best, so maybe the other crops are better. We have almonds and peaches growing, some of the apple trees have apples but one has nothing, I think the pears have a few but not many. And I keep forgetting to check the prune tree.

We looked today for a damson or sloe tree/bush but we can't get one here so frustrating because when I lived in England they grew all around behind my house and we'd pick the sloes and damsons and make gin.

Strawberries are in season here a bit earlier than in England, mine are just coming up but my plants are a few years old so after this crop I'll probably dig them up. My son loves cucumber so we might plant some cucumber in that spot

I went to the plant nursery today but then it rained hard thunder storm rain all afternoon so might be a few days before I can plant anything I will take more pictures then

We have the sloe bush in the hedge around the garden , it is called the blackthorn, has small white flowers in March, and sloes of a deep blue in October. I make sloe gin every year, as long as John doesn't cut the hedge to often. They grow all over the countryside around us as well.

I still have frozen rhubarb from last August, we have only one plot of rhubarb on the heap, which is up side down turf that rots down which we dug up to make our veg plot. It s good rich soil now. Have you done anything with your square pots Sarah that fit over the railings.

We always had sloes growing by us too when I was in England, I've not seen them here at all, maybe they grow in a different part of America? I'm not sure.

I haven't done anything with the new plants I bought or the pots. It's rained really quite hard since last Friday, luckily we are too high up to have the flooding but lots of people are flooded. It's supposed to clear up in the next few days though so hopefully I can get the plants into the pots and work out what else I will get.

Do you have any plans to plant anything new?
