Lavender and Forget me Nots, April and May, south west, GB.

Today I planted some Forget Me Nots.

This is the first time I’ve planted these. They were a present from my mother a year ago. I was saving them for a suitable spot.

We used to live in Richmond, and mum and I often go back there. It’s a truly beautiful spot, especially along by the river. You can walk to London. Not now though, due to Covid-19. I’m missing this spot a great deal right now, and planting these flowers has helped me to feel better about not being able to drive over, visit mum and my sisters (who I miss more than the scenery), and maybe even go for a walk or a bike ride.

Here are some photos and a video of me planting and weeding today to inspire you. It’s a good time to remove dead wood and get some weeding done ready for the spring bluebells.

Lavender cuttings.

  1. Dip the cuttings in water and rooting powder
  2. Plant in the spring and put the pot outside.
  3. Water daily.
  4. Plant out when roots show in around 3 weeks where there is room to grow or move once you have a few Inches grow; this takes around 8 months.
  5. In around 2 to 3 years you’ll have a healthy plant.

For new plants cost free.
