As always time has gone by without an update on here for quite a while! With spare time in the garden so precious I have overlooked my blog once again! As you can probably imagine I have lots to update you with and despite the very wet weather I have managed to crack on with quite a few tasks. Before I start telling you about what these tasks are I would just like to thank all of you who regularly log in to see what I've been up to and of course the kind comments that I receive, they really are appreciated! I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new blog by a regular reader of this spot who is starting out with a garden project themselves! So hello to CottageGardener and for anyone who wants to take a peek here's a link to the their new blog:- http://cottagegardening.blogspot.co.uk/
So here we go again! As promised an update on my wild flower area, which I started giving a complete overhaul last Autumn by stripping off the old turf and sowing with perennial wild flower seeds. As the perennial wild flowers will take a year or two to establish I also grew annual wild flower plugs that I planted into the area in Spring to give a good show this year. For anyone thinking about creating a wild flower area I would suggest that starting from scratch as I have now done is the best way to get started. Simply strip off the turf and dig over the area breaking up the lumps of soil to create a fine even tilth. You don't need to add compost or other goodness to your plot as most wild flowers will grow in normal garden soil.
