Today I started with the first planting session of the season. I visited a local nursery and bought lilly bulbs, flower seeds (sweet peas, cosmeas), salad seeds and some plants. First I planted boxed strawberries. Boxed because I hope I can keep some out of the reach of snails. It is an old and delicate variety called Mietze Schindler. Here we have four Mietze together with one future husband called Korona. I placed the Korona in the middle of the harem. To fill the big willow basket I put some wood and rotten plant material first and filled up with potting soil afterwards.The basket is layered with firm plastic foil.
First I filled some styroform chunks halfway up the bowl and added potting soil mixed with small pebbles and covered with pebblesafter placing the plants. I also put a little moss in between (craws like to clean my roof by picking up the moss and tossing it down on the stairway):
