🍃House Plant, Ginger Harvest And Signs Of Spring. #SixOnSaturday From My Hampshire Garden. #GardeningTwitter #GardeningMakesMeHappy

Here we are again for another Six On Saturday Post.

January 14th

I had to hunt around for items to include this week, but I’ve found a few things to entertain you.

First photo is on an Echeveria which has been re-homed with us. The flower has emerged after we rescued and watered it.

Next photo is of the second crop from my ginger plant. This is about half of the total crop. I’ve made it all into crystallized ginger which I regularly use in the kitchen.

The third photo is of curled leaves on the variegated holly. Small caterpillars have been making their homes inside the rolled leaves.

The fourth photo goes to the anemone plants which were new last year. I’m pleased to see them emerging once more.

The fifth photo is of the Spring buds on one of the Blueberry seedlings. These were given to me last Summer and I have over-wintered them in a cold frame and intend to plant them in the garden this year.

Lastly the Mahonia is preparing its berries.

Thank you for joining me for this #SixOnSaturday post. I hope that you enjoyed it. Jim is now our host for this gardening meme and you can find his blog here where you will be able to catch up with links from all the other folks who take part.

Happy gardening

    • It is long and slow growing. I planted it in February, harvested the first pieces in the early autumn and the rest in January. So lots of patience is needed! I shall try growing another one soon.


    • I would say that it is a bit stronger, I had a cook’s taster of my crystallized ginger and it was delicious, then the heat hit the back of my throat and almost blew my head off! However, I’m not someone who regularly eats hot spicy things, so others may think it quite mild. The ginger is something I do enjoy on my muesli.


Let's get some great discussion going on here.
