Re-wilding is so on-trend at the moment. I think there's some financial motive for farmers - even The Archers have a re-wilding project on the go!This field is 50 yds from my house. The farmer hasn`t used it for 3 years & now nature has reclaimed it. I don`t know what the flowers are but they`re gorgeous to look at.
We Have a garden centre locally and they are falling over themselves with compostI bought 4 bags of compost online from Wickes & it was about a month for delivery! So yes, compost, toilet roll & plain flour seem to be the new gold measure
Thankfully, there is a little independent shop near me that sells all sorts of lovely plants as well as being a greengrocer. I bought some saxifrage from there last week & some dianthus today. Trying to build up a stock of slug resistant flowering plants as I have a lot of shrubs & not many flowers.
Looking good Kieron , well doneStill no further water added as I am still placing my rocks on the upper shelf of the pond, along with the fact that I am awaiting a delivery of Scottish Pebbles. In the meantime, I cracked on with my terracing for which I acquired 500 rocks on good old e-bay with delivery included. They did need jet-washing - that took four hours on Friday. All have to be carried to the back of the garden. Bought a few plants from Shirley Aquatics using their click-and-collect service. I have some more in buckets awaiting planting in baskets. Anyway, things are starting to take shape ...
