Another Bank holiday down and life really is blooming in the world of nature. The cherry blossoms are littering gardens and paths with confetti and new leaves taking over the shape to come. Some of us like the look others require this to be blown aside to keep clear for the many visitors they hope to receive.
The tulips are looking good, herbaceous borders are starting to fill out and need to be staked, this also means weeds are growing too, of course a weed is only a weed if you don’t want it to grow there, you know, right in the middle of the rose bed! Everyone can remove uninvited guests, if it’s a weed or even a pest, do you need help with natural pesticides, this part of the cycle has already started as the season warms up and the bugs start to bite. Having recently sent the natural guardians into the garden, we can relax a little.
Time to enjoy the new patio and we might have to build a fire pit to keep warm as a bit chilly in the evenings.
Hope your gardens are growing well, if you need any help with projects or just some advice please do not hesitate to contact us.
