Well it might be cold but we have had plenty of sunshine, which means plenty of growth in the garden with lawns needing attention, although a frost this week reminds us it’s still early.
The mowing continues and we are already on pond duty too, cleaning up and planting, turning the pumps on, it’s a real sign of spring coming together. As the Daffodils finish and other flowers and shrubs start sprouting it’s time feed and support, with each sunny day the pea sticks will be placed in the borders and nourishment given.
With the mowers in full swing and another patio finished, we are enjoying the longer hours to be in the garden, especially when it comes to picking new plants, maybe a sculpture to help bring everything together or do you have just a big lawn you don’t want to mow?
