The potential garden

Neglected & wild it may be, but it's full of potential.

The potential peas & snowpeas I planted on Sunday:



Potential apples and pears:



Potential stone fruit:



Potential citrus (several varieties):



Potential olives:



Potential passionfruit:



Potential grapes:



(Okay, so the last two might be stretching it - so far they've had loads of flowers but very little actual fruit - they may be just ornamental.)

And a couple of survivors from last summer ...

Parsley:



And chives:



Heh - it doesn't look half so wild in close-up!

Wow. That's some great potential. I hope you get lots out of it. I gather that is the earthbox in the top pic?

Cannot wait til my fruit trees are as established as your K!

dani - yes - that's the first Earthbox in the top photo.

gf - we were lucky to buy somewhere with established pears and apples, and have added the rest over the past six years. But there are a few that are still in pots after way too long, and I will try to get them in the ground this year! I'm sure they're terribly rootbound ...
