The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
After doing some research and reading Joan's comment, it appears my climate zone is too cold for pomegranates. I have enough fruit trees and bushes as it is. I'll never have another cherry tree, however. I grew up with them--a favorite of my mother. Why, I don't know. Pitting them was the pits. Plus, they were too sour for my taste.
I've been watching that wind map and it seems as though there is a lot of activy of wind going through the English Channel. Are you have high winds now.
Your planter boxes sound wonderful! You do a great job to get everything all assembled with soils, boxes, drainage holes, etc.
A little below average - about 9°C, and we have plenty of rain, so my garden gets a good first wetting. The containers are 30 cm. deep, and I made some drainage holes 7 cm. from the bottom, so every container has its own stock of rainwater. I'll make more pics when everything starts to look nice, and I'm getting there, very slowly because I can't do very much at a time. I salvaged plants from the broken containers; two hollyhocks, lepedeza burgeri, a lot of parsley and rosemary. Broccoli and radishes are above ground, and someone gave me a basket of narcis and grape hyacinth, so there is some colour to begin with.
My goodness, Chris. You do have high winds. How is the temp?
Nice map! I can see the high wind we have here.
Earth Look at that front! I guess it has rough seas and weather.
Earth Some of us are getting a nice warm flow from the south.
Joan, thanks for the informative garden sources. The information you posted said they want Well Drained Soil. I remembered last night that I forgot to mention that. But doesn't almost every plant want that?
Your correct Daniel. Most of the commenters about that $11 pomegranate tree said it was very small.
Patricia & Joan, I also love to eat lemons, and sometimes I'm a sourpuss as well.
