Tuesday 2nd May

MY how time flies, May already.
I am now hardening off the plants in the greenhouse, I have grown extra for the bowling club Fund Day, including Iceberg Lettuce.
The John Downie Crab Apple is a mass of flowers should be a good crop, didn't make any last year with Jack being so ill so will make extra for the family.
The yellow Rhododendrons are spectacular this year.
That Yucca had to go, it was so dangerous, it certainly did not like having the spikes trimmed off, became very sad looking, what a job Scott and Alan had removing it, just could not believe the size of the rootball, thankfully its all gone
The Begonias in the greenhouse are now growling well as are the new Dahlias --Hayley Jane. looking forward to seeing these in flower.

One of the perennials I am growing from seed for myself and the club are Rudbeckia, never grown them before so hope the are as good as the picture.
