My garden, second winter..


Well, I’ve done lots of digging, adding soil improvers, some small fruit trees, bulbs, plants and everyting I can to make it a nice garden. Succulents on rockery improved, let’s hope they make it through winter.

You've been working hard ! I hope your succulents survive. Have you given them plenty of good drainage …

All that hard work will be worth it in the Spring when the bulbs burst into life and the fruit trees are in flower. Like Seaburn I would love to see your garden.

Ah, that's kind folks. I haven't managed to put any pics on yet, will try tomoro if it's dry enough. Oh no, it's a tiny plot Seaburn, I'm not as spade happy as my last comments implied :) I could dig over your pots if you like....yes Hywel I've plenty of grit on my slightly sloping rock/ grit garden it's such fun unloading it from the car : {. There's an old climber by the back door look. Thx lincs and honey.

Hi Walesgirl, hopefully all will do just fine. I have quite a few succulents on my slightly steep rockery which have done pretty well over the years. Saying that, I can’t recall having any lengthy harsh winter over recent years. This may have helped also.
Fruit trees will look lovely I bet!
