It doesn’t happen very often that I get to spend all day in the garden. Usually it’s either the morning or the afternoon. But today was a special day, and the weather was dry, so what better place to be then in the garden. Before I started on the garden, I got rid of a load of garden waste at the tip this morning, and because I’ve been in the garden all day, I’ve got more to take to the tip tomorrow. I’ve bought a couple of the fabric Hippobags from B&Q. They’re really good, and I can fit 2 of the midi sized ones in the boot of our car. They should last for ages, so that should make taking all that garden waste to the tip much easier. Once in the garden, I finished off “Ivy Corner”, so I won the war on that area. Although there is a little section of root that I can’t get out, so I’ll have to get some weed killer and finish the ivy off that way.
I then moved onto “Exotic Bed”. I removed all sorts of unwanted weeds and yet more ivy. But the bed is very large, so any of the ivy at the very back can stay as it’s creating some ground cover so will stop the weeds from growing through. I pruned various plants, and now it looks much neater. The bare soil that is now showing, I’ll fill in, using some of the plants that I bought with me. So it’ll look much better soon, and less naked.
So all in all, a very productive day. Now I really should go and have a bath before I start dinner as I’m very dirty.
