"Flooded Out !! "
Well here we are again holding our breath that a summer will come along this year. I am a fairly new gardener only really became interested in my mid forties when i realised that all night raves and the worst hangovers at the weekend had to come to an end. So i hung up my dancing shoes for a nice sturdy but comfortable pair of gardening boots and gardening gloves!!!. My self and my partner who is a keen gardener moved into our house 2 years ago. Last year we put a pond in, unaware that we were the lowest garden in the road, the rain came and the pond went a way- we ended up with a small lake for a back garden.So – we started again, we have now raised the pond and put drainage in. We still have problems when it rains but not to the extent as last year. Our project for this year is now to landscape around the pond area and put plants that like moist (well wet) soil. Would welcome any suggestions about plants. We will be taking photos to show the before and after. Heres to a warmer and dry summer.
