wild meadow seeds


Once again I had today in the works garden.
Living up to Wendy, I started the day planting fence posts in post concrete. Cant believe how easy that is, except all the water I put into the hole kept draining away before I had a chance to pour the concrete power in! I used 2 whole bags, Martin said that was quite a lot, he uses one bag for an 8 foot fence panel, where I used 2 for 2×3foot posts, but it least it wont fall over!

Of the 30 feet I had to dig over on the slope bed, I’ve got 1/4 still to do, but I have cleared the brambles from the bottom ditch and S.B.K’ed the lot. Does look so much better. Trying to decide where to get some wild meadow seed from to plant up the slope. Think I’ll try Homebase on the way to work tomorrow…………

Want to remember to take some photos tomorrow so I’ll have some before and after shots of the patio and slope.

I've never tried fence posts in concrete. I use those spikey metal things. I suppose the concrete would make them more solid. They tend to shake a bit with those metal spikes.

Hi, I can never get those in straight, or solid enough, Concrete works well!
