school all over

16 May 2010 20:58:40

hi everyone

hope you are all well and happy. school all over. i just have to wait for results which i think will be out before the end of may. Examiners are at the school correcting everything, so it is the waiting game. I will really miss school and my friends, but i am glad exams are over and i can get to do my garden and tunnel work again.

spent the day in the tunnel yesturday planting up my hanging baskets and mums window boxes, need to get more compost to finish all the potting up, i have loads of pots to plant up for the patio. decided not to do window boxes this year, they make the windows so dirty and end up falling in bad winds, decided on hanging baskets instead. Bought some more new ones in aldi on thursday, and new coco liners for the other ones that i already have.

today i washed and disinfected aload of pots, that were lying around. hope to tackle the veg and fruit beds tomorrow, the fruit garden is really in need of weeding and clearing up, i also want to plant some more strawberries. walked around the garden this eve and it is in a bad state so the rest of the week will be spent out there.our hedge was a casulty of the winter weather, it wasnt great to start so, it is coming down bank holiday wknd and a new hedge (grisellinia lithorlis is going in its place, i am going to hire a shredder and use the bark around the new hedging, mypex will also be used to keep weeds down, i have some great ideas for the front garden and also the back and i have all summer to do it HORRAY. 

I will take some before photos soon and post them up. The after photos will hopefully be alot better.

well thats it for now, so glad to be back with you all again.

bye for now and happy gardening

HI! Hope the results of the exams is good. But I know you will enjoy getting back to the garden. Dont use the woodchip from the hedge until it has had time to decompose.
