POTTING ON..

Another week has just slipped by!  So much garden…so many weeds…so little time.

                                                                               

All the plants started from seed have been ‘potted on’ i.e. planted into larger containers and watered with diluted fish emulsion.

                                                                                                       

I do love the names on some of these tomato plants. “Boxcar Willie”  was a favorite last year, new to us this year is  “One Time Charlie”.  Who makes up these names ?

                                                               

The garden continues to unfold. Below, Clematis‘Liberation’ and ‘Barbara Jackman’ mingle with Viburnum ‘Kern’s Pink’    ( It never was pink. )                                                                              

 Showing off now too, are the early blooming Buckeyes. In my garden I grow three of the species. The early blooming Red Buckeye (Aesculus pavia), below…

                                                                                    

  the Painted Buckeye (Aesculus sylvatica) …

                                                                                     

the third,the Bottle Brush Buckeye ( Aesculus parviflora)  is later blooming, end of june. Too bad these are such neglected & underused plants. They deserve a place in any garden with some dappled shade.
