Free Garden(er i've slightly cheated) - Part III
Wow, it has been ages since I have been on this website but now I can finally say I’m back.
I’ve been pretty busy digging beds and trying to find plants depending where the sun shines or not. Unfortunately I have spent some money on a Fatsia Japonica plant, I couldn’t resist. Only now it has become a favorite attraction for snails. I did not realise that something so small could do so much damage and if your a Hosta plant well you’ve got no chance!!
Yes I’m learning the joy of pest’s but my daughter loves the little slugs who carry their house upon their backs. She hates the houseless ones, which I found out the other day. In fact I think the whole neighbourhood has realised this to be the case. She can scream.
I have also taken on the task of cleaning the patio which has been neglected for years and ended up using a wire brush to see the true colours.
I did plant some tulips which were very successful to my neglective surprise which I will attach pictures off.
I would have looked after them better but the new arrival who is now 14 weeks old distracted us quite a bit.
I’ve also tried using orange peel to put the cats off, which was a tip I picked up from Superscrimpers. I don’t think its working yet and in fact I think they like my garden even more.
Also added a couple of Hydrangea, both are lacecap and hopefully they’ll do well in the partial shade.
Well that’s it for the moment but as I say some photo’s will follow.
