The garden is at that crucial point in the new season where almost everything is ready and waiting to go. The beds have been prepped, the seeds have been sown and are almost ready to leave the greenhouse and be planted in the soil that is ready for them. It is that magical in between time, where the garden that was in your head all winter is ready and waiting to burst into life and turn that dream into a reality.
So I decided the best way to explain it all was to make a video tour so I could bring you along and chat with you as we wander through the garden together. As much as I hate to do it, the video is a little on the long side, sorry, but it shows absolutely everything going on in my garden in the start of spring in my New Zealand Garden. And there is a sneaky tour of the almost finished Rock Garden in The Palace. It would be like being there.
Spring is a busy season and so I have a lot to show and tell you. So, grab some popcorn and settle in for a large helping of spring hope, optimism, expectation and excitement before the reality of the season gets going.
Come and see… I’d love for you to join me in my garden:
Filmed here on the West Coast of the North Island of New Zealand, slightly below but not in Auckland on Saturday 25 of September on a glorious day sandwiched between a load of really not nice ones.
Come again soon – the planting will begin shortly.
