I lifted the fleece which is covering some cabbages I planted last autumn and as you can see they have survived, but need to grow a lot more yet. it's strange that the ones that were left over from the planting and just in shallow compost and left in a very cold greenhouse during all the freezing weather, are doing much better than the planted ones. They didn't get much water either. Hopefully I can get those planted soon and have some lovely cabbages for the spring.
The cabbages I planted out under fleece in the autumn.
The cabbage plants left all winter in a cold greenhouse and doing well so far !
Finally, it lifted my spirits to see the wallflowers that I planted beside the lottie greenhouse have survived that terrible cold spell, amazing ! they made such a wonderful display last spring and flowered for ages, so I look forward to the first bud showing. There was also Lot's of bulbs showing through, so although my hands were frozen,and I hated being up there in the cold, it was a positive visit. Photo below is the Wallflowers today.
This one of the wallflowers is from last spring, can't wait for this years to flower.
