Lavender dying

Posted: 24/07/2013 at 13:37

looks like its too wet in peat.Lavender likes things rather dry and also of late not too cold a climate.IT should be planted in good drained soil and although you need to water it until it is established it does not like wet roots.

what is this?

It is always full of surprises and you see alot of wild plants and animals which sometimes you miss on foot but I have to say the cotton grass was really wonderful.

 out riding the Mendip hills in the lovely summer sun.(It is breezy up here on blackdown).The bracken has now grown and is hiding the path to top and in between the wild flowers grow.As we reach the top the Exmoor ponies are all standing on the trig(.to get the breeze I guess).we ride the what is normally a boggy path in winter across the top and I see drifts of white cotton ,bog grass,not normally noticable and indeed as the poem says...beware.For here in winter it is very deep pools of mud and you can not cross it,even now you can not as its very rutty,but it looks so beautifull drifting across moorland and in the distance you see Brent knoll an old volcanic hill standing out in bridgewater flats.
