Developments in my garden
March 6th 2008.
Today I started another project in the lower garden. I started to dig out a bed for conifers of all types and sizes. I moved a large columnar blue Thuja from terrace and this is planted at one corner of the new bed. The idea is that as we walk through rose arch from the upper garden towards “glade area”, the conifer bed will come into view. I plan to improve soil with conifer soil. Auchan are advertising Thujafold at good price. Then I will collect as many different conifers as I can find. I will cover with bark. Not sure about edging. It might look nice to have a hillock or rockery behind it.
I also planted 3 small green Thujas at lower end of pond to continue the look of surrounding the pond area with trees/shrubs/bamboo etc..
No photo’s yet.
On March 7th I finished digging over the area for the proposed conifer bed. (See pics). Now I need to do something to make the sandy soil more suitable for conifers.
