Down at the bottom of my garden, next to the fence i have a spaces about 3ft by about 20ft, the soil is so bad nothing would grow in it, except laurel, and they have done brill, plus made it more private. but a couple of years ago when ever i saw a weed in my garden excluding dandilions, i went and put them under the laurel trees and they did really well, so i’ve put a path at and built it up, so they dont get at the rest of my garden, and i now have a wild life erea, in fact some of the plants in it look quite nice, and there are some sort of flowers there all year round, plus the wildlife should be enjoying it as well.

Sound brilliant to me. you could have gone in and sprayed roundup... and messed about and really had a jolly time moulding it to your vision... but I like your approach better. Nature, left to her own designs can outdo any garden expert if given time.

An excellent approach Clarice and I absolutely agree with Lori,if you give nature a chance it usually pays dividends.

Do you get wildlife too - nice ones, I mean, like butterflies and ladybirds?
