Something nasty is afoot!
Well I couldn’t cope anymore seeing my lovely gravel looking in such a mess and after seeing last evening who could be to blame I decided enough is enough.
It appears a couple of blackbirds have been making short work of our bark chippings and not the local cats as I first thought, so I came up with the idea of putting a little barrier down and planting some lovely Greater Variegated Periwinkle all the way around the gravel edge once the periwinkle has grown I will remove the nasty ‘green stuff’ and be left with a little mini hedge.Although I will have to keep clipping the periwinkle back on the gravel side it can run riot on the bark chippings and will act as a natural barrier against messy Mr & Mrs Blackbird.
Below is the side garden after todays work.
The periwinkles will not cost me a thing as we have quite a few in the garden so I will be able to take an awful lot of cuttings from them
