Almost as an afterthought to winter I wrapped up our cardoon and bay leaf a few weeks ago after some mild frost. Also as a half-baked attempt to blanch the stalks (when is the right time to blanch cardoon actually?).
I sure hope they are snug and warm with the bitter cold we are having now….

It’s still too cold to do much in the garden. But there’s enough to do inside. Such as experimenting with ikebana. Any experienced ikebana people out there who can give me some tips?

My market haul: ranunculus in many bright colours.
Some for the balcony, some for inside, and eventually all for out in the garden.

I know you know we love our coldframe (but just look at the arugola and turniptops happily growing)

The tiniest collection of cabbages that have been braving the cold.

Snowdrops, because its such a cold day.
These are in my mother’s garden and she offered for me to take some with me. I think they might do well in the shady patch by the apple trees….
