STORIES from the OFFICE.....
LATE WINTER/EARLY SPRING NEWSLETTER.
It's the talk of the town....what a wet, wet, wet winter we've had!!
Most gardens with a clay based soil are sodden! hopefully planted with water/moisture loving plants that will survive the excess wet soil. But... on walking round my garden this morning, which has clay based soil although drainage has been improved, I spotted Heleniums & Rudbekias with a wealth of new shoots at the base.....so these 'well-drained soil' loving plants surviving through this wet winter has to be good news for most gardeners.
The media coverage on climate change has erupted during this winter, more & more people are becoming aware of the importance of keeping their piece of personal greenspace in great condition - many small, healthy greenspaces unite to form an overall huge healthy greenspace. Sustainable planting schemes & their subsequent impact on insect & bee populations play a huge role in producing clean air, improving pollination for our vegetables & fruit & providing a safe haven for us to retreat to.
The 'greenroof' bin store has given me a continuous 'green' view from the office window & the selection of succulents, alpines & prostrate Rosemary provided some nectar for early bees.Its also been heartening to see the introduction of re-cyclable pots come into the garden centres reducing the amount of plastic going to landfill.
- AUTUMN is the time to take ACTION to organise that professional help so your ideas can be realised next year, you will be ready to roll right at the start of the season, so as soon as the weather starts turning to spring your garden project can become a reality.
- Want to improve your garden, revamp just a part of it or are you looking at it wide eyed, perplexed & completely overwhelmed? Call Carol or send an email, it can be sorted so you can sit back with that chilled white wine & enjoy your dream this next summer.
Look forward to hearing from you,
