Gardening on the Circus. April 2011

April 6, 2011

The white flowered Elephant’s Ears (Bergenia ‘Silberlicht’) and all the Bleeding Hearts (Dicentra spectabilis) (both the red flowered and the white flowered) are all in flower and look wonderful. All the plants are starting to put on new growth now.


 The North sides  are looking  very green and lush. Very nicely done by the planting designer Sally Protheroe. Its a pity the South sides have been so drab over the winter. Most of the Rosemarys & Sages have died and I’ve had to take them out, and most of the other plants on the South, the Sisyrinchiums, Blue Oat Grasses, Rubeckias etc. die back in winter leaving nothing.

We have been busy replanting most of the Geraniums and large leaved Elephants Ears, that we rescued before the work began, back on the Circus to give some green on the South, also our Hellebore orientalis (Lenten Roses) on the North side where all the Ferns died back leaving it empty. All the white flowered Hellebore nigers (Christmas Rose) have been a great success on the North.


There have only been the odd spring bulb this year, that we managed to save and put back in, as all the hundreds we had planted over the last 5 years were all removed when they cleared and replaced the topsoil. To have a good display next year we will need to plant hundreds this autumn. We did manage to save and replant quite a few Bluebells and they should be in flower soon, on the North sides.

    that you know people will want to buy it. These pre-computed numbers,
    hold on in a very giant information bank for millions or URLs on the net.
    What Googlebot is looking to see in the Free Local Google Advertising Listings is quite another.
