After a delightful walk round the woodland at Nostell Priory this morning
including watching the ducks waddle across the ice on the top of a lake
It therefore seemed fitting to continue enjoying the sunshine by doing some tidying up.
Months ago, I noticed a hole in the hugelbed I had built using pine wood for the blueberry bush. This hasn’t happened to any of the other beds full of wood and I am wondering if an animal has buried its way in.
Not wanting to disturb the bed, I simply covered up the hole with soil and will wait to see what happens next. In any case, I doubt I will be moving the blueberry bush to this new home in the next twelve months. The soil on top is too thin to plant a bush with substantial roots – the wood needs to decompose quite considerably, I would think, first.
So, I’ll keep the blueberry bush where it is for now and think about a Plan B.
