Tidy or mulch?

Posted: 27/12/2013 at 14:06

We all want something different from our gardens. I want to share mine with the birds and the bees,(and the rest), so leave things to help them over winter. I have little interest in latest cultivars and exotics which may not cope with this.

I think it's down to preference and attitude and what you're growing Karen. The worms take in the leaves eventually. I don't remove them from my garden, I do remove them from grass. If I grew alpines  I would remove them from those

I love pulmonarias. You'll have to look after that white one Gg, it's a bit feeble compared to most of the others. I lost it very quickly

What's the weather like in your area?

Variable here. Did some shredding of very wet willow to earn our mulled wine and mince pies. Sun out, then in, then out. Lovely now.
