After a couple of weekends of attention, the balcony garden is shaping up. The alpine troughs are starting to bloom. In fact draba and iris have bloomed and faded. Alpine clematis is in full bloom right now. The ‘Spring Fever’ Iceland Poppies are budded out. And the ferns are unfurled and looking lovely.
Greens are starting to sprout and a couple of herb pots are planted. The mint pot this year includes chocolate, pineapple and apple mint with peppermint. Another fragrant herb pot includes boxwood basil, flat leaf dark Italian parley and lemon balm. And Purple Carpet creeping thyme is nestled in with English thyme in another container. The container with the basil is In the living room until it gets a little warmer at night.
It’s coming together.
