How do you grow flowers etc without any weeding!


By dungy


QUACK QUACK? (Thats hello in Duck talk,
We’ve had so much more rain ive decided to learn Duck language,

But ive some good news that may help those of us who cant get around in the garden so much “But” like to see both colour and remember those country flowers that seem to have gone.

I was doing my morning walkies around the garden this morning looking to see what if anything had managed not to drowned without a life jacket on,

It was then i noticed all one border was in bloom with a few different coloured flowers swaying away in the gentle breeze,

A really nice sight to see,
What im talking about here are the wild flowers seeds i sowed last spring and as it said on the pkt "they’ll re-seed every year and just keep producing the wild flowers of times goneby,
Those verious flowers you’d see in the hedges as you walked the country lanes.

So if your wanting a plot/bedding area to have a show and your not wanting or can’t do a lot of bending etc?

Then maybe these seeds are for you!

All i did was in the autumn cut all the stems etc down to ground level and remove these cut off’s to the compost bin and let the winter do its worst.

Im sure if the sun comes out we’ll have a lovely show this summer.

All the fruit trees are showing signs of a good crop and the weeds are prize winners without a doubt,

Other than that bit of news ref the garden "i think i’ll find a dark room and have a lay down.

I think you must be Quackers!
No pictures of he lovely wild flowers then? There are some very lovely assortments of wild flower seeds now, I agree and they look so nice and natural? I used to grow a few on the edge of my veg patch....great to bring the pollinators in!!

Wild flowers are really lovely if you have the room to allow them free reign, i actually have a couple of trays I'm doing for my daughters garden, they were freebies with her gardening mag and s'posed to attract butterflies, because of the rain and the fact that she works full time I am still caring for them here, if she doesn't soon tell me where they are going they'll end up going into my garden instead, lol....
