I have sprayed all the weeds & grass coming up in the driveway, weeded part of the garden, trimmed & dead headed a few things - I love my nemesias & especially that they are fine with me attacking them with hedge clippers.
I started to dead head the japanese anemone but ended up pulling loads of it out.
Into the nice sunny space that left me I put sweet pea seeds.
I soaked them while I was working & put them in once I was done.
Not sure if they will germinate, I was given them a couple of years ago & just kept forgetting to plant them.
Can't hurt to try.
I think I need the dwarf variety as the only sunny spots haven't got enough height to let the full size ones grow properly.
I tried them against the fence but it was too shady & cool for them.
Perfect for clematis though - those are really thriving.
pictured is the woodland corner a few weeks ago.
I put some japanese anemone in there last autumn & some has taken, no flowers yet so don't know if it is the white or pink...
hoping for the white, the pink is the one I ripped out today, it is in the worng place but I can't eradicate it - I have given up trying & just enjoy the flowers when they are out then ruthlessly cut it back. Or rip it out so that the next season I have a smaller clump, only takes a couple of years to be huge again.
