I got garden centre vouchers from Jo and Tom for my birthday – at my request – showing my maturity by getting green fingers…. or at least trying to! I spent the vouchers this evening buying bedding plants at Homebase in Wandsworth Town, having been to Hazel’s to water their plants.
I did succumb to a burst of anticipatory amateur green fingeredness a few weekends back, inspired by the onset of the warm weahter to get rid of all the old plants and ‘garden furniture’ that the previous owners/tenants had left behind, and weeding the planters. But that left everything looking a bit bare with just a straggly ivy and two evergreen climbing bush things (yes, see how natural a gardener I am!!). Hopefully the new plants will survive and brighten things up a bit, plus provide some runner and/or green beans!
