Flower show @ vegetplotlot 2011

I can say this is a brilliant year for flowers at my plot.  As you can see in the follow images that I took from my plot…blooming beauty.

Planting flowers at the plot is really benefit for all the other vegetable and fruit crops… as they attract insects to speed up the pollinate process… my saying is without bees there is no honey, and without flowers there is no bees….

Mainly I have planted my flowers at the front and bottom of my plot… in between bed’s corner dotted some flower plants too… a collective way to round-up the insects in my plot… I think this may work for me…..

Bed 1

The front…. In this bed I have cramped in Rudbeckia, Sweet Peas, Gladioli… they are really fantastic…

Bed 1 flower galore 2011

Sweet Peas galore…. have lots of cut flowers throughout the summer… scents in heaven…..

The bottom…. this is suppose my wild flower patch… last year I had scatter some wild flower seeds and let the nature takes the hand to see to it…It did have a very attractive result…

This year I have this Malva flowers plants coming up which I did not sow particularly, I guess it must from last year’s seeds which coming up this year… and I research about this and found that this is a perennial plant and the variety of this one is ‘Windsor Castle’…. so I have got a royal structure at my bottom of my plot…

The wonderful thing is my Raspberry bed is nearby, and with the blooming Malva not far from it…. my raspberry did have a bonus benefit….

 Malva 'Windsor Castle' 2011

Last year I saw people having good time growing Sunflowers at the plot, so I decided to grow some this year… not too bad… if I stack them up properly they may shoot up taller… by and by they look stunning when open up…..

Here is a clip to catch some of their beauty,…

I still looking for the name of the bee plant that I planted in between the bed… the flowers of this plant is like a tiny mini orchid and when it starts blooming… imagine many mini orchids open up and the bees are in heaven to take the nectar…… since I planted this at home seven years ago, I always fascinated when I see the attraction of the bees….. unfortunately I have misplaced this plant’s name and I given its name ‘Bees plant’… and hoping one day I’ll find its real id….

Week 24

19 July – 27 July 2008

Just a few days away from the plot and what amazing to see all the plants taking up paces in growing……

Highlight of this week

Flower plants

Vegetable plants


Produces of the week

This week really a bumper harvest, there are so many to choose to put into the pots, the chef has no problem to whiz up any meals but where can she find the time to do it as she is busy picking at the plot…..

Sweet Peas

This is really a sweet sight with this lovely plant, they are just keep on producing these lovely scented dinky petals……..

New plants

The young sweetcorn seedlings was kept at plot 6’s cold frame while I am away, so the first thing when I am back is to put them into ground.  As Hazel was going to discard all her French dwarf beans and leeks seedlings, I rescued them and put them into my plot.  Also I have to transplant the marigold plants to new ground as the old sweet corns need space.  The butternut squash which grow in pot at home has move to the plot so it can spread its wings……..

New additions

It is a long story from how I got this two compost bins, cut it short and that is from John’s old plot.  They are quite sturdy and will put into good purpose use in the future…….

Bits & Pieces

As the allotment now becomes my daily business, there are so many to take notes on as nature is playing magic all the time, one minute the ground is bare and barren and suddenly it shoot out the most amazing things, just browse on……….

Apple Tree & Poppy

My neighbour plotter’s apple tree looks really strong and healthy and there are so many apples probably can feed for the whole year.  This lovely poppy suddenly coming up from Pat’s plot looks very pretty…….

Slow worm

Still keep an eye on Bill’s slow worms, and since Bill now leave the compost tip alone for the slow worms, aren’t they lucky living in this 5*+ hotel……
