Planting up my grandmother's abandoned grave

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 21:32

I dont think, after reading up on the cemetery, that Jess would get away with putting a pot there. when I sugested she put a pot there and run, I didnt realise how official the site is run.

You have to put in an application form for anything you want to place.

You could get away with it down here in Cornwall, but never in that place!

At least Jess will know that the plots are well looked ater.

There are fees to be paid and paper work to be done.

I would think the gaps are for expansion, when it gets constantly wet in the winter, it will swell, its not overlap, just butted.

There are some youtube clips. We used to go to all the 

folk festivals from late 70' to late 80's they were always good for a laugh!

This site is so well maintained that you wont be able to drop as much a buttercup in there.

Its swept twice a day, bins emptied 3 times a day.

They do their own planting of what suits the wildlife in that area, even the compost bins are worked for ecological value.

 They have won awards for best kept grounds for cleanliness and wildlife. They have trained staff who patrol the site every single day.

Definitely wont need gardening tools to find it, no need for a mashete!

Just leave them for now then when you see new shoots in the Spring, just chop back to the ground. They will appreciate a nice thick mulch ready for winter, homemade compost, well rooted farm muck or just a pile of leaves.

No chance here then, its a beautiful plant though. It has yellow flowers as well as the striking coloured leaves.

Does your company sell plants, that is very pretty, but I dont suppose it would grow in this country.
