Scottish gardening - aye, aye
As a working gardener in the Scottish Highlands I really wouldn’t recommend this sort of malarkey in December. No, certainly not, it’s damp, it’s cold, the hands crack and daylight doesn’t hang about for too long.
On a positive note, however, it’s good to get into the outdoors once you’ve actually got there, outside that is, and I continue to consume a plentiful supply of coffee and home-made cakes in many a chilly garden at this time of year.
Tomorrow I shall sweep the last of the leaves in Clashmore and prune a few shrubs in Scotsburn before returning home to pot up some Gardener’s Garter and Bugle in preparation for next spring. There’s always plenty to do, eh?
