News From A Cottage Garden

I can’t believe its been nearly a year since we moved from the big smoke, and what a year in the garden its been. Here are some photos of the garden, well plants, at the moment.

Its so important for the first year of owning your new garden to let it do its thing, wait and see what plants come up, see where the sun casts its shade, where the frost spots are, see which bits collect water and the list goes on. It’s so hard not to be temped to just put a plant here and move a plant there, but as I soon discovered it really does pay to WAIT. This winter I will have alot of plants to move and divide, so that hopefully next year the garden will be well organised and controlled. To be fair we have been away a lot and the garden has had to for the most part look after itself.
