Gardening Season On

in gardening •  last month

This weekend is a gardening weekend. There are works that need to be done as soon as possible if we want to get fruits and vegetables this year.

The weather is nice, it's warming up slowly. At the moment of writing it's sunny and 12°C outside, which is perfect for outdoor activities.

So far I've managed to clean the raspberries. The stems need to be cut each year to help the growing and the old stems that are no longer good, need to be cut out and clean the place.

In the meantime seeds are planted inside and waiting for them to grow and get strong to be planted outside.

My black tulips are growing nicely.

I have no idea how much time they need to bloom, I'm guessing there will be passing at least two months till I can see the results.

This is the onion flower which is very funny. I planted some bulbs last year in March and got nothing out of them. This year they started to grow. Nature can be funny sometimes.

😀 I'm so glad to know you're interested! I promise I'm going to post gardening reports regularly 😁

Black tulips?! :o

·

Yes, black tulips. I'm going to post photos as soon as they start to bloom.

Hy @erikah, thanks for visiting my blog. By the way about the passage and picture of your posting stuff, we have almost the similar time to planting, now I am also clearing and mowing my back yard to plant some vegetable. I have not been preparing seeding yet, but the location for planting is almost ready. It might be I have to get The shortcut to grow without seed on nursery. Thanks for reading my chitchat😁

·

Yes, it's spring here and the weather is good enough to start working in the garden. Thanks for stopping by.

·
·

You are welcome @erikah. Sorry for late response. Have good day and keep in fresh.

·
·
·

No problem, we are all busy, I'm replying late as well. That's life :)

Yeap, the tulips are growing nicely. Are the real black tulips or the dark purple ones?

·

That remains to be seen, you know how it is, they tell you one thing that turns to be another in fact. I guess there are no black tulips, only very dark purple ones. They look black when they start to bloom but then the colour changes. We'll see.

·
·

The darkest "black" tulip is a breed called Paul Scherer and it's actually a very dark purple. Indeed, there are no black flowers (as far as I know) but these dark shades of purple are really spectacular.
Looking forward to see your lovely tulips, no matter what color they are. 🙂

I don't mind if it's not entirely black (we agree it won't be) I'll take whatever I get as it's going to be my first homegrown tulip. I've never had one before :)

·

·

Fingers crossed for a nice color and shape. Your first homegrown tulip must be exquisite, despite the color.
I have like a gazillion tulips in my garden. Red, yellow, white, purple, different color mixes.
I'm very fond of them since my sister hates these flowers. 😂

Let's hope so. 😯 How can someone not like tulips?

·

Well, this is a good question. However, we are talking about my sister (the biggest carnations' fan) so nothing surprises me. 🙂
