Good wishes.

with such a big garden plant some trees now, that is this autumn. Time passes so quickly a few bare root silver birches, Rowans and acers will in 5 years contribute greatly to the gardens structure. Get the boys to help, give each of them their own tree, they will remember.

ps in case they don't take a photo of them with you and Their tree.

Just back from Saxlingham Nethergate, Lunch in the garden with friends, a gentle stroll after, then a horrible 80 mile journey home, time for another glass of wine.

You will never be rich money wise but that is not important if you are a happier and healthier person.

there are 30 chargeable hours in a week, 45 weeks in a year. At £15 per hour, gross £20 kpa vehicle costs, machinery etc etc.

Customers who commit to regular work, ie all year would expect to pay less, one off projects should pay more.

no holiday pay no sick pay, it is a labour of love.

There is a lot to be said for big birds. Must resist temptation to make inappropriate comments.

£2.50 a bale from the local farmer.

Use any excess mixed with grass cuttings to make compost.
