april 24 overallThis is the garden this morning back lit by the rising sun. It’s come along at an astounding rate but it’s still early days. Don’t be tempted to put vulnerable plants outside; wait a bit to plant perennials. You can put in woody plants now, if you can find them.  The best choices are coming up.  So give the nurseries a chance to get their deliveries.

Will be on Shelagh Rogers this afternoon at 4 p.m. and tomorrow a.m. on Fresh Air between  8 and 8:30 a.m. (that’s Sunday the 25th).

It’s a glorious day but we do need the rain that’s coming our way .  If it doesn’t rain, make sure big plants are watered well below the root systems.
