What's Happening in the Rosebank Garden

On the Friday before Easter we had a fine day, the only one for the whole of the break - I took a few photos of what was happening in my garden on that day.  Since then I have been sowing seed in the greenhouse as it was too wet to do any gardening.  So I suppose all was not lost.  I think I am going to have to get all my seed packets out again to make sure I haven't overlooked anything.  I wish I was more organized.  I seem to fumble through the seed-sowing process every year, starting off with a plan - then letting me enthusiasm overcome it - and ending up not sure what I have done and what needs to be done.

Today has been beautiful - lots of sunshine - but there is no warmth in it just a chilly breeze, but at least it's not raining - so that's something.

The chives have put a spurt of growth on after all the rain - I have chives all over the garden used as edging - they are easily dug up and split and re-root very easily.
I love the shiney bronze new foliage on the rose trees

and the fresh new growth on the raspberry canes

the Dicentra is just coming into bud

and this shrub which I can't remember the name of - Bridal something - does anyone out there know what it is called

and finally the wonderful Wallflowers are just starting to show their colours - isn't Spring grand.


  1. Lovely shrub with white flowers. I can't really see what it is but almost looks hydrangea like. The wallflowers look great.

  2. It's an Exochorda - Exochorda Macranta 'The Bride'. I have one too, they're so delicate and airy aren't they?

    I love all the new colours at this time of year, your garden is looking lovely :-)

  3. You have some lovely plants in your garden.The white flowery bush is very pretty.Its been so miserable this bank holiday weekend that its been impossible to get to do any outdoor gardening.I still have some seeds to sow, maybe next weekend.

  4. I like the photos which are an indication of delights to come! Flighty xx

  5. Hope the weather doesn't cause any damage to your displays this weekend, they're forecasting frosts again, and something called snow.

  6. I think the shrub is called Bridal Wreath...don't know the Latin name...Could look it up but I've just come in from the garden from a break and I can't be bothered getting up again. What are the seedlings with the red veins on the leaf, they look lovely whatever they are.

  7. Love love love the slideshow of all your new starts reaching for the sun!
