Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire No. 40: Plant spring bed­ding

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

One of the en­dur­ing joys of spring is the drift­ing scent of wallflow­ers from un­der an open win­dow. Now is the time to plant them. Cul­ti­vate the bed well, in­cor­po­rat­ing well-rot­ted or­ganic mat­ter, and bring it to a plant­ing tilth, level but not too fine. An edg­ing of for­get-me-nots al­ways looks well and goes in first, so that you have a neat frame over which you step to plant the wallflow­ers. Grade th­ese lat­ter for size and fairly jam them in to keep them up­right dur­ing the win­ter months. In April, you will be the toast of your en­vi­ous neigh­bours.
