Gardening on Our Own

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 09:20

I think so Simon, I love seeing the changes each year. I am addicted to growing from seed and cuttings, just love seeing things grow and of course free plants. I get a lot of satisfaction seeing insects on plants that I have grown specially for them.

I've been out and pottering a couple of days this week, it's great to be out of the house at long last

I'm managing to hang off the sowing Fairy but it's getting more difficult. Did some seed collecting which is close Night time temps here are still around 0

OH is constructing me new frame, it looks huge at the moment but I know I wont have any trouble filling it

Beautiful pic davids10 No snow here and have finally got some gardening done. Just a clean up/tidy really. Still had a few lurkers that I hadn't planted in Autumn so I've found some space for them. Thinking of this has a clean up, prior to the main event, which will be seed sowing in a couple of weeks

There's a little alley way at the back of the houses, so I have engaged in a little guerilla gardening there too So good to be outside, feels like it's been a long Winter

Chainsaw License?

Be very careful and gets some training would be my best advice. They are very dangerous. My partner does ground maintence and tree felling work. He was trained with a local authority years ago. I don't know much about them, but he swears that Sthil? are the best

Bluebells?

Those harebells are really pretty Fairy. Don't think I've seen them for years. I'd like some for my garden, maybe these will be first on my not grown before list

The rewards of idleness

I'm a hands off slowly slowly gardener. I'm really chuffed if things self seed and turn up in unexpected places.
