The gardeners 'skill'
. . . . . Or is it something else?
As gardeners we all have varying degrees of skill, experience, good fortune and location. But what if these also fail you?
When a sad-looking plant comes up for discussion in the garden my most quoted phrase is
“Well, it’s got two choices . . . .” The rest as they say, is in the hands of the Gods.
And if even this doesn’t work there is still one final encouragement I will give me plants and that is . . . "The BIG “C”.
It’s not cancer but C.O.M.P.O.S.T. Spell it out to your saddest-looking specimens and you’d be surprised just how often it works!
