Well here we are mid October already and the chill factor is here, I have to say autumn is one of my favourite times of year, the changing of the colours like a military parade, the abundance of apples which starts off the festivities, brewing cider and bobbing at Halloween. I know for some it can seem the pre-curser to the winter doldrums, but for me it makes winter that much easier to handle, it’s probably because I have spent the last few years of my life outside, all year round, and this makes you much more aware of what’s happening with the weather and how it’s changes your garden and the wildlife in it.
Mow’n’Blow are now dividing plants in gardens and the thought of new plants for spring has given me a lovely job to do and that’s plant shopping with clients, and I have to say I am enjoying it. Selecting some special varieties or just your solid performers and additional bulbs to an area, I am more than happy to accompany you to help make the choice for certain areas a little easier or make it more fun. Thank you to those that have already used this service.
