Gardening by the Moon

Posted: 28/02/2017 at 13:39

Gosh only a month to go , exciting planning a new garden 

Although they do say to leave an existing  garden for a year to see what comes up , however , don't think that will happen 

Have put , rosemary , Tyne, curry plant in tyres at allotment and they have done really well , 50% compost /gravel with a gravel top , also have some herbs in pots in garden at home ,

Have several lavender bushes at home & allotment , the bees do seem to like lavender 

Intrested to see lunar calendar 

Just being nosey are you moving far ?

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Terry , we have a few Rather neglect plots , unfortunately people take them on and try and do it all in one go , instead of a bit at a time and they give up 

I am with you it is great to feel you have achieved something in sorting the plot out and growing some thing you can eat or with flowers to admire 

So allotment associations strim or spray neglected plots do it doesn't look to bad 

Plan to go to plot tomorrow as somebody had got 2 blueberry bushes I can have but need to buy  some eraces compost 

Shame the weathers got cold again

Always liked the French lunch brake  of between 2 or 3 hours where we use to stay with all the shops closing for lunch , even the local market was always finished by 12-00 ready for lunch 

Shop hours where always a bit hit and miss 😀

Managed to get in garden before the rain , layered  a black berry stem to see if it will root , tidied up 2 hanging baskets of pansies and moved 6 pots of tulips and daffs to front of house 

Managed to chain saw some wood for fire 🔥 as well , rather pleased with self 

Always feel better if I get a bit of gardening done , have a good evening
