I always wait until there’s a rainy day in the forecast to plant anything that needs to get planted. The result is usually that I’m racing the rain to get things planted so I don’t have to water them in. Yesterday rain was supposed to come around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. That gave me the entire morning to plant all the perennials and flowering shrubs that have been sitting in their holding area for a month or so.
I ended up finishing up planting leeks just as the rain started. It was a very successful day, I managed to plant: 4 flowering bushes, 2 peonies, 2 roses, 15 perennials, 100 leeks, 15 celeriac plants, and 40 onions. There are still a few things left in pots that I didn’t manage to get to, but we will have more rainy days next weekend.
