The first May Bank Holiday weekend turned out to be strangely pleasant, weather-wise Normally when there is a holiday Monday, it pours and tempests and storms. Not this Monday. So we got out into the garden. We've done a little light pruning of the cherry trees and the plum tree (always seems odd to me to prune in the spring but that's what the books say to do with prunus tree, prune either in the spring or as they finish fruiting).
And we've made a start on rescuing the poor flower beds. The Under Gardener is out digging along the side bed even as we speak.
I potted on the tomato and pumpkin seedlings yesterday too. And sowed sweet corn, purple sprouting broccoli, white sprouting broccoli and romanesco seeds. I also sowed some button squash seeds, some capsicum seeds and some hollyhock seeds. We'll see how they all get on.
