Garden Notes – You Have to Start Somewhere

Garden Club The Villager

I have been helping my son-in-law with his garden. He is a complete beginner and I find it very useful to have to explain things to him, even how to sow radishes. Sometimes it makes me query why we do something, just because we always have. ...

GARDEN NOTES – SO MUCH TO DO Stella Strachan When you buy plants have you wondered how they get such a well filled pot? Take a close look and you will see that they have often put several cuttings in to create a quick result. This does not only apply to herbaceous plants. I bought a leucothoe which turned out to have three well grown plants in the pot. These were easily separated to provide a good clump in the garden. That bigger pot may be a better investment than the cheap small pot. ...

Garden Notes – What do you need?

Garden Club The Villager

I wrote a long piece on the essential tools in a garden, but it was so boring. Everyone knows that a two wheeled wheelbarrow saves the strain on your back and can be pulled when full. A sharp spade can chop up those perennials and lift the turf to plant bulbs. Who is going to use a push mower when you can do everything with a rotary? ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

We have all spent the last few months marvelling at the range of plants that are behaving in unusual ways. What it has shown is the difference between everyone’s garden and the differences within each garden. You now know where the warmest, most sheltered and probably best drained places are in your garden. They are where those plants were exceptionally early. Of course some plants are sticking to their normal routine, but enough have flowered to show the favoured spots. Now you need to build on this. That plant that you know is a bit tender, can be tried in these spots. Think of the fun you can have! ...
