I was really pleased with what I found on the market last week. I bought these silk flowers and vase for only £3.00 🙂
Having a big garden is lovely, but the downside is that you need big planter to make any impression at all. So anything I can up-cycle is great. Thanks to a friend of ours, we acquired these three old builders wheelbarrows. I bought some very good value plants to go in them. I always buy plants that will last me more that one year, to gets seeds or take cuttings. I don’t think, if you are on a budget, bedding plants are a sensible option. Look how beautiful they are, thanks Jeremy!
Well, last time I attempted this time ran away with me and my dandelions just stewed away in the bucket and I ended up throwing them away. I decided I must try harder! But when the sun shines on the dandelions and they are fully opened to the sun , I am always tempted to go and pull their heads off and do something beautiful with them! Of course there are loads still left in the garden worshiping the sun.
Oooh, I’m getting a little excited about the up coming growing season.
There are violets coming out all around our garden.
I spent some time yesterday tidying up some fruiting plants to let the air and sun get to them. It was a very satisfying afternoon and the plants look great too.
These chillies have been grown using my own home made compost and so need weeding, but making your own compost saves lots of money!
I’m looking forward to this crop of chillies as this is all I’ve got left from a bumper crop which I dried two years ago!
These tomatoes are grown in my compost as well and as you can see are doing fine.
I gave them and the chillies a feed of organic seaweed fetilizer yesterday.
