This is a place to post photos, and to discuss, what is in your garden. This is the thread for April 2014. All garden photos are welcome. Since Spring is here (knock on wood) we should finally see some flowers in this thread. In the meantime, all landscape and garden photos are welcome. If it is a photo taken in your garden or your yard, it is fair game to post it here.


Here is the link for the April 2013 part 2
and the April 2013 part 1 threads.

For previous 2014 threads:
March 2014

February 2014

January 2014

For all other 2013 threads, please go to the December 2013 thread and follow the links for the relevant month.

To see all of the 2011 and 2012 threads, please visit the
photo gallery
. (I requested that the photos be moved there. I am still waiting for the GW editors to move the threads. Maybe I'll email the editors again?))

FWIW if we have 50 posts in this thread by 15 April I will make an April Part II thread.

I'm also seeing some spring startups - no flower buds but at least there's new leaves coming.

Sedum rosettes:

and Phlox paniculata (in the Phlox Protection Zone):

I think it's time to carefully remove the perennial stalks, and some of the ornamental grass foliage - maybe even some dead leaves, but I'm still suspicious.

Very little blooming, but a few things growing. Meanwhile the northside foundation bed still has snowbanks over it.

RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

I'm loving the photos of snowdrops and crocuses. However I still have snow, ice and mud. Thankfully the ice and snow are beginning to give way.

These are the only blooms I have and they are indoors. Last year I was very aggravated with the local nursery for not having any orange gerbera daisies, only pots of red and orange daisies. (One of my longest standing pet peeves with nurseries are offering combination pots for sale rather than individual plants.)

So, when I encountered all these orange gerbera daisies at Hannaford's supermarket yesterday, I snapped them all up! I'm just hoping that I can keep them alive for the next two months until it is safe to put them out in my orange garden. (My orange marigolds have no resistance to Japanese beetles, but gerbera daisies seem to hold their own.) I just hope they make it until the first of June.

RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

So lovely to see bulbs blooming and buds expanding!!

Sped - If you can, move the gerberas out when it's warm enough during the day, starting with shade, to harden them off just like you would seedlings, even when it's too cold in the early morning and at night to leave them out. That will help keep them vigorous until you can plant them in the garden.

RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Well, what do you know, it’s spring! :-) I love those daisies too, Spedigrees, such a shot of color! Pretty snowdrops and crocus, Pixie Lou. I planted a ton of snowdrops and they disappeared, so I’ll enjoy looking at yours.

Steve, I always wanted a Magnolia and haven’t tried one. Those buds are so interesting! So fat and fuzzy. And pretty cool to see hosta leaves so early, even if they were in the garage.

Claire, glad to see your sedum and phlox are back.

I'm disappointed in my crocus for the second year in a row. Last year, they seemed puny to me and this year, at least the white 'Jeanne d' Arc' are definitely puny and less of them than usual. I'm also missing quite a few crocus. I don't see 'Advance' anywhere. And I planted 25 Leucojum last year and I don't see one. Could they be late, I wonder?

Well, here is what is going on in my garden…

A blurry photo of Honeysuckle leaves out already...

PM2 - In my garden crocus are a favorite of the voles. Might that be the problem or are you lucky enough to not be plagued by the cursed creatures?


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Babs, remember I was asking about the tracks in the snow during some melting earlier? I think that may definitely be the reason. I can't think of another reason, crocus are hardy right? And the Leucojum, 25 bulbs? I'm not sure if it was the cold weather or if they could have found every bulb and ate it?

Plus I mulch with shredded leaves so much, I've read they love those conditions. I am planning on getting more bulbs in the Fall and using hardware cloth boxes. I haven't had a chance to see if I can find where they could be living in the yard or using a treatment for them, but I suppose I'm going to have to. I'm also debating whether to cover all the bottoms of my vegetable beds with hardware cloth. I did read they especially like Asparagus roots, so I am planning on doing that bed, but….where the rest of the vegetable garden has annual vegetable plants, do I have to? Do they eat the roots of your vegetable crops in the summer too?


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Thank you NHBabs for the advice, vis a vis setting the gerbera daisies outdoors on warm days. It's good advice and I definitely plan to, but first the temperatures here need to drastically improve.

NHBabs and Prairiemoon, my crocuses started out great too but after a few years disappeared. I'm sure the voles ate them. Below are just some of the vole highways in my yard this spring. I've heard that planting crocus bulbs in mesh wire cages will protect them, but being a lazy gardener, my strategy has been to give up on crocus and plant daffodil bulbs instead. Voles don't bother daffoldils at all. I don't believe that any of my vegetable roots were on the voles' menu either. My carrots, squash, and corn were unscathed. The only vegetable predators were birds plucking out newly sprouted plants, but Pixie Lou's pinwheel solution solved that problem! They did unearth and feast on the roots of a few of my newly planted spruce trees two years ago. This year they ignored the remaining treelets as well as the newer ones, so I guess their taste for evergreen root waxes and wanes.

I think those whose crocuses do well, probably have low populations of voles. As you can see, though, my property is infested with them.


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Spedigree, that is very obvious isn’t it. I don’t see anything like that in my yard, but I’m going to do a good search this weekend. I will definitely increase the amount of daffodils too. No problems with your vegetable beds. That is great!

I wanted to ask you, where did you find those pinwheels you use? And I wonder if they would work for squirrels. [g]

PM2: I do probably have a low population of voles (lots of predators) but I also have a high population of squirrels that also love to eat crocus bulbs.

All of my crocuses are Crocus tommasinianus cultivars which are squirrel resistant (that's why I chose them), and might also not be tasty to voles although I don't know that for sure.

It might be too early for the leucojums to come up, particularly since they were planted last fall.

Claire


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Oh…at least that's some hope for the Leucojum, Claire, thanks.

And that is interesting about the Crocus tommasinianus cultivar, because the crocus in the bed with all the missing white crocus, is 'Ruby Giant' which I believe is a variety of that and it seems to be fine.

One of my problems, is I do not have a population of predators. No cats in the neighborhood really, no snakes, only hawks once in awhile and they seem more interested in the birds. I have squirrels every day.

Well, I'm going to search every inch of the property this weekend and see what I come up with.


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

PM2, I only planted Leucojum once since they got eaten their first winter. I have since started planting tasty bulbs in hardware cloth circles unless they are in a part of the garden with gravelly soil. There are a few bulbs that both the voles and I really like, and it's worth the trouble to me to use the hardware cloth.

I don't think that the voles bothered the onion family or peas, melons, squash, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, or greens. I don't grow carrots, but I do sometimes find my potatoes munched. My veggie garden is surrounded by rough field that gets mowed a few times a year and so is chock-a-block full of voles. I often don't mulch much of the veggie garden (so the soil is warmed as much as possible) so the voles may feel too exposed. Also, most of my vole damage is in the winter.

In some places my vole tunnels look like Sped's but in others they are higher or slightly underground, visible only by the slightly raised or loosened soil. I think it depends on how much cover there is and how frozen the soil was when they were forming the runs and at what depth the most food was.


 o
RE: What's Blloming in Your Garden - A Photo Thread - April 2014

Thanks Babs, I am going to do the hardware cloth for bulbs. That's interesting that they left your veggies alone. I will look closely for any kind of disturbance in the beds and lawn.

Don't want to hijack this photo thread. I did pull up the old thread on 'tracks in the snow, moles/voles?' if anyone has any further comments about it. Thanks. :-)

spedigrees: I've read a few rumbles that this may be one of those delayed springs where a lot of different flowers bloom at the same time once they catch up. I hope so. You're probably at the beginning of an explosion.

My pieris are just starting to bloom.

Pieris 'Karenoma' is ahead:

And Pieris 'Little Heath' is just starting:

I cannot wait to get home and start photographing: the lilac bush, the "tree-lings" which are sprouted up in my garden bed, the crocuses and daffodils, the peas and the nasturtiums which I'm hoping have sprouted. And what ever else will surprise me there.

Steve: The oldest crocus clumps are about 5 years old, but I planted more each year after that. I also dug up a few of the oldest clumps to move some of the bulbs elsewhere.

The tommasinianus (I practice writing that) crocuses spread very quickly in my yard, helped by the fact that I usually plant five or more bulbs fairly close together in a wide hole.

I checked my records and discovered that I had ordered Crocus 'Whitewell Purple' one year. 'Whitewell Purple' seems to look a lot like 'Ruby Giant' so some of the darker purple crocuses in my pictures may be WP not RG. If I feel particularly obsessed I may go out and stare at them to see if I can find a difference, but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.

No hostas yet, but Dicentra 'Goldheart' is rising.

It's been unusually warm for a few days and the pace is picking up. Tomorrow the forecast is for dramatic cool-down so the overenthusiastic flowers will probably be on hold for a while.

Today 'Toby the First' daffodils opened behind the Pieris 'Karenoma'. There were just buds there yesterday.

and Narcissus 'Jetfire' just opened in the middle of the Grey Owl juniper patch. I'll try to move these daffodils when the foliage dies down; the junipers are overwhelming them (there used to be an open space in the ring of junipers and the daffodils fit nicely in it). I held up one juniper branch to get this picture.

They say that pussy willows produce nectar and are pollinated by insects, so this would probably be an excellent source of early food for bees and the like. I didn't know that. I heard a bumble bee buzzing around yesterday so I'm glad it has something to eat. Maybe the pollen is a food source too.

Hostas, bleeding hearts, daylilies, mums, monarda, phlox, clematis, all poking up, and leaf buds on a few hydrangeas. I think I may have lost some other hydrangeas, though. Keeping my fingers crossed.

So nice to see all of the new life coming out of the drab winter! And Steve's yard looks as if he has chairs ready to sit out on the deck/patio! I'm aching for that time to come.

The roses are leafing out and the rambler 'Excelsa' is beginning to cover the bottom half of my (dirty) window. It's in a south facing location next to the house and is taking advantage of the added heat. Somewhere around July Fourth this window should be bedecked in pink blooms.

Nearing the end of April the garden is still slow to wake up, but it's a joy to see what does sprout.

It's still mid-season daffodil and scilla time:
