I need a Tardis-type shed for storage - something that will hold all the tools and equipment tidily and in an easily accessible way and take up no space in the garden whatsoever.

Coastal hedge

Posted: 27/11/2013 at 18:24

Sea buckthorn makes a good coastal hedge - good for security and privacy because of the thorns and good for wildlife because of the shelter from predators  that a thorny hedge provides, together with the fact that because they are the last of the berries that the birds will eat, there are almost always plenty available for the winter migrants coming over from the continent.  

The berries are also high in Vit C and other nutrients, and my Russian daughter in law makes a delicious jelly from them, to eat with cold meats etc.

Buried treasure

Isn't it amazing what we can drag up from back then, although we'd forgotten it by the time we'd started our homework, and it's all we can do to remember where we left the car keys now!

That's real buried treasure!!!

Ah, but obviously to the gravel enthusiast there is no such thing as 'just gravel' any' more than there are 'just sweet peas' 

I find geology fascinating
