Letters from the garden
Happy New Year everyone, and if we saw you at the talk last week thank you very much for joining us, we will let you know when we do our next one.
As a carry from the Winter garden we did mention that when buying plants always make sure they are winter hardy there are varieties that are only half hardy e.g cyclamen and therefore are no good in frosts etc.
Well it’s been cold and wet and cold but we are off to a good start, finishing one Pond project to start another and then obviously looking after our winter gardens.
We have had an interesting year with trials and tribulations on route with ourselves our families and our extended families, I can only say that I am thankful for everyone around me and glad to still have those people. Anyone that is going through health issues or losing loved ones including pets our thoughts are with you, it’s difficult enough at this time of year, and a lot of people suffer from SAD, so if you can go somewhere warm do it and enjoy.
When you get back the bulbs will be poking through and the days will be getting longer and we have something to look forward to, I’ve already seen my first snowdrop.
Well enjoy the garden and if you have started sowing seeds already keep them protected and enjoy the sun when it’s out. Keep the compost turned if you haven’t used it all and burn the pruning that’s piled, see you soon.
