This post is really more for my benefit than yours! (I’ll explain this in a minute.)
As you know, Mark’s Veg Plot is devoted primarily to vegetables, and flowers don’t feature very prominently. However, this year I am making an effort to grow more flowers. Last Autumn I divided some of my perennials and potted-up lots of “root-division cuttings”, which I have kept in my coldframes over the Winter.
Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, the cuttings are all beginning to sprout new growth, so I decided the time was ripe to plant them. They have gone into the gaps made by the recent removal of several of my Dogwood (Cornus) shrubs from my North-facing border.
I have put in 7 x Verbena Bonariensis, 7 x Rubeckia “Goldsturm”, 5 x Helenium and 2 x Echinacea “Pom Pom White”. They are mostly quite small so there’s not a lot to see at present, but hopefully by the Summer time there will be a good display. This post is intended therefore to record for me the starting position, as a point of reference for later on.
Following my usual cautious approach, I have kept back a few plants just in case… They are still in the coldframe, just in case we get another really cold spell and some or all of the ones I have already planted get killed off by frost! If all goes well though, I have another place earmarked for them, next to my shed, where until recently there were two more Dogwood bushes.
