Planting day

Today we planted out our new pots. And some old ones we had. I'm here are six ballerina Apple trees. They grow up not out. In columns. And they grow yummy apples. Hopefully it won't be long until we get some. 
These pots have seeds in them. All ready for spring to burst into life. I've watered them in and I won't water them again until th Spring. 
In the two older pots I've planted some baby camilias   They can stay in here for a few years before they will need to go out into the ground. 
Now a question.  How do you know when these mandarins are ready to pick?  They are providing lovely colour to our winter garden, along with th lemons next to them. Very bright and cheery. 
So not lot done today but enough to just keep our hands in the dirt for a little bit. It's drizzling now so I'll shower and then stay inside and get some crafting done 
See ya xxx


  1. The mandarins look ready now - but what do I know? Maybe you should google it. I'm sure you are glad to get things planted now, and rest this winter. Camellias, love the smell of them. How soon until you will have flowers?

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Not sure Sharon. But I'll post pics as soon as they flower xx

  2. Wow, that is awesome. You have oranges? I see you replied to the comment above. I do not have a reply thing on mine. Maybe I will go check. Inever seen one. I love all your planters too.

    1. No Grammy not oranges. Mandarins. I picked them and ate one. It was very yummmm
