My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
GROWING SEEDLINGS OF WILD FLOWER (野草の苗が育ってます)
Seedlings of Chinese violet cress (Orychophragmus violaceus) are now growing.
Seedlings in a module were transplanted to plastic pots.
We found a place where the plants were massed together with violet flowers
in our neighbourhood in early April.
It looked like a violet carpet on a slope.
At the end of June, we collected its seeds,
and sowed them in a module in the middle of July.
We are planning to plant the seedlings at a corner beside English bluebells
in the new garden.
