I know I should get a life, but for me it signifies the start of the summer growing season.
We emptied out the compost bin yesterday, dug a nice deep trench and filled with garden compost and chicken manure pellets.
There is something quite exciting about getting the tomatoes plants planted out – the thought of summer days and eating home grown salads, I suppose.
The tomato seedlings have grown so fast this week, thought it was time to pot them on.
I have always admired topiary hedges clipped into animals, people or other sculptural shapes. So I decided to clip one of my box hedges into a topiary man. His eyes and buttons are dried Eryngium seed heads.
When it snows, we have a ready-made snowman!
Although we are just into autumn, now is the time to think about spring flowers in your garden. Daffodils, hyacinths, tulips and crocuses are widely available right now and will give you a stunning display for very little cost and effort. There is something quite uplifting about the thought that in a few months these lifeless, uninteresting shapes will herald the start of a new gardening year.
