With so much work to be done over the autumn and winter, I haven’t felt the urge for the new gardening year to begin until just now. But then I got a seed catalogue from The Seed Co-operative, a company who I believe are the way forward in terms of seed production.
I also noticed that the soil on the top of the bog garden is starting to compact,
no doubt because of all the vegetable washing up water I’ve been sloshing on that spot. Since the current pond liner is going to be replaced in the not-too-distant future, there’s no point in filling up the pond itself. But the bog garden could do with some plants growing in it as soon as practicable to protect the soil.
I also still need to order the other trees that I intend to plant before March. I’m sure you must have heard the phrase that the best time to plant a tree is last year, so definitely waiting another year will not do!
