You can tell it’s spring by the madding crowd at the local bulk-buy plant nursery. Also daylight savings started this week.
Monday: filled a terracotta urn with potting mix and poked four varieties of strawberry into its exterior pockets. A couple of the seedlings already have flowers and small, unripe fruits.
Tuesday: dug a trench between the olive tree (sapling, really) and the driveway, into which I dropped three Boronia heterophylla — two “Moonglow” (white) and one “Blue Waves” (pale mauve-blue).
I bought these just last weekend from a reputable nursery (not the aforementioned bulk-buy place) but their roots turned out to be terribly pot-bound and one of the Moonglows developed something like dieback the day after I brought it home.
Hoping they’ll recover, settle in and form a nice hedgelet in front of the olive tree (sapling).
