New bed

New bed

I removed a few huge shrubs and made a raised bed with our dead eucalyptus tree, and filled it in with the compost from our compost heap, and used it all up. Hope to plant a dozen ferns around the back and dot the odd one in and then let Deb plant some of her stuff

Waste not want not!  I love people that use everthing possible.  You and Deb are brilliant at that and making it so stylish too!  Can't wait to see it planted up.  Happy New Year to you both too.

Martin, excuse me for asking, but I presume the 'off' one should read 'odd' one? Just asking in case Fran gets to it first. :)

Martin it looks great, and will be fantastic when planted up, well done.

Great job Martin. It seems that you go by: reduce, reuse, recycle.

See Crinken's pal waiting in the wings will his new home be in this bed? Look forward to see the bed once it's planted.
