The garden is abundant at the moment, and I am not sure whether it’s our abundant pruning or the potential for a terrible winter, providing food for our wildlife to store?
I also felt abundant in our local Wooolies-alike buying rather a lot of blue tulips, feathery tulips and a mixture of fluffy alliums.
I’m trying to do a bit a day so my interest doesn’t wane. But if I’m honest I’m still not doing the right things… my Beth Chatto plants haven’t fared well in their carefully chosen spots as I failed to check on them after planting? How can I have been so remiss? I read drought hardy as being sun baked and perhaps in gardening lingo I should have been more vigilant or did I soak them too much before planting?
Our huge trees at the bottom of the garden are looking really poorly so the tree man may need consulting. Or I ask my new colleagues for their opinions? Lots of reasons to want to get rid and start again. Couch grass being one in the back – I need to cover over some areas to see what I can get rid. But I have also been pruning hard so maybe there will be a way to bring back from the sunbaked near death if I get out of the shade myself? A deckchair gardener needs to get busier again…
