At long last I’m putting what I learned on my PDC course to use and have mapped both front and back gardens. I’ll post progress here as the plans come together and hopefully then to fruition. Some major negotiation likely with kids and Karen, but all part of the process!
I’ll be opening my garden for Edible Open Gardens in July organised by Transition Stroud, so have an incentive to at least get some of the way. At the moment the garden is a muddy mess.
Recent jobs have been:
- making a mulch bed
- hacking back overgrown honeysuckle and bramble
- planting olive and calamondin (miniature orange) following Peter’s tip-off about fruit trees in Wilkinsons!
- pollarding willow (keeping whips to try a bit of basket weaving later!)
- making a bamboo cane frame for growing against greenhouse (doubling as shade)
When I get round to it I’ll post a few photos as I do stuff. If anyone wants to come and look and/or join in let me know! – Seb.
