Exquisite Handmade Gardens
It's Xmas month now! And for the most part, gardens and gardening are probably out of the majority of people's minds.
So, for the brief moments when we still entertain the idea of a green-fingered foray into the backyard, what can we do still? Well, the leaves probably need tidying up, by now they have been falling in considerable amounts. In our hometown ofEastbourne, the potential for this type of task is considerable. The mild local climate means that autumn won't quit! A lot of deciduous trees here continue to be green.
And if we add to that putting away what needs to be put away, making some space for a possible wildlife refuge - there may be a requirement for it on your patch - there should still be ample time for those upcoming mince pies!
Please remember when clearing up, thought, that a number of little critters are already hibernating. If a pot has been standing where it is for a while, perhaps it's better to let it stand.
And should there be a great deal more to be done in your garden, maybe you can file it under "ongoing" and give yourself a well deserved brake - even if you don't think you deserve it! Take it easy on yourself.
That's it from me.
We wish you all a happy season!
Enjoy your garden
