Verdun, as Bristol is Green Capital of Europe this year I am doing my best to help through not buying anything for the garden that needs to come by post or anything from the plant outlets I can walk to that has needed heat to grow. That also means no fertiliser or pesticide that is manufactured - not difficult as i garden organically. \\\the only additions to the garden will be propagated from my own stock or friends' cuttings etc. Two months into the year and I have cuttings of cornus, willow and forsythia, hundreds of snowdrops from division and set to sow loads of seeds which were already in the house. Only another ten months to go but I am enjoying the challenge for this year. More of us "not buying any more plants" could save the planet.
