Gardening on Our Own

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 09:20

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

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

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