Nothing better than relaxing in the garden when the sun is shining and it's knocking on 20°C. Not too hot. - Never been a great lover of gardening as such and I prefer things as low maintenance as possible. Not too much to do in my small back garden, since we had a garage, greenhouse and conservatory put in, there isn't a lot of space left to play around with.
Last 3 weekends, I've had a few odd jobs to contend with. Firstly, the rotten 40 year old fence had to be pulled down and discarded. - Last week, attempted to weed the jungle. There's never been any plan to my raised bed. I just throw anything in there and hope for the best, but in hindsight I should never have stuck a clump bamboo in the middle, as it's grown out of all proportion. That's my next job, thinning it out and separating all the individual plants, as they are currently growing all over each other. It's like there's an horticultural orgy going on. Makes me blush to look at it.
Yesterday evening, I attempted to lay some grass seeds, as I've never been happy with my lawn, and particularly where it meets the borders. There's a bloody cheeky thrush that pecks there every morning, looking for worms. Tried to lay a bit of turf and thought a bit of string with plastic might scare him off, but this morning he was scuffling about underneath it, so that pissin' worked!
Maybe we can use this thread to post favourite garden plants, trees and flowers we have, or maybe some photos of BBQ activity?
