🌱Nature is Springing In My Hampshire Garden, For #SixOnSaturday February 18th #GardeningTwitter #GardeningMakesMeHappy

We have seen a mixed bag of weather this week in the garden. I’ve been pottering outdoors and planting seeds indoors. I have a mix of seeds saved from last year and new ones bought this year. I enjoy the excitement of opening a new packet of seed and discovering what size and shape each of the different varieties are.

So let’s see what’s flowering in the garden.

I’ve been checking out the Snowdrops and discovering a couple of different varieties. Both have those delicate green stripes on the inner petals. I also found these lovely mini iris that I planted this autumn. A vibrant blue when much of the rest is still brown.

Indoors, I’ve started on the seeds and cuttings. On the left are some nasturtium seedlings, in the centre are cuttings from the variegated Tradiscantia that needed tidying up. On the far right are some Tom Thumb lettuce that I am experimenting with, I’m hoping to get some early lettuce for my lunches.

Each week is another step closer to longer warmer days. I could just do with a spot of decent rain to fill the new wildlife pond that we’ve dug.

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

  1. Ooh a wildlife pond sounds great ❤ I would like to build one one day too. But for now have 20 raggle-taggle pots and containers for the birds and bees.Very lovely iris.

  2. Your snowdrops are lovely and frilly! Very pretty. I am a new fan of iris reticulata – it is so nice to have that splash of color from such a tiny flower. I am so appreciative of the longer stretches of daylight in the evenings. Yay! 🙂
