What to do!!

Posted: 23/04/2012 at 13:24

How about shortening the lawn with a border running from one of the side borders part way across the lawn. Then concentrate on the bit you can see for now. You could fill the border with Verbena bonariensis, some tall grasses and rudbeckia  which would be relatively inexpensive, get the birds and hover flies in, some long lasting colour and movement. Try not to get hooked up on a work of art. My garden is 6 years old and still looks a mess but its MY mess and I love it for what it is. Also, lots of plants are remarkably resiliant, just think about how many different garden plants now grow in the wild without help from anyone. Experiment. Even the best make mistakes. Most of all, relax and try to enjoy just being outside in it!

If you don't plant them soon they will probably die anyway. You've nothing to lose. How about planting them in a pot by the door so you can keep an eye on them.

Sowed mine in a large pot in a small lean to greenhouse. Were supposed to be for Christmas. Forgot to thin so have been cropping them as you would Salad Bowl. Just keep moist.
