The wild garden update

(Somehow this blog post got lost – I actually wrote this in May 2010. Sorry! I’ll post soon with a new update) If you remember last year, I had some big plans for this area of the garden. Well, they’re starting to come into place.

About a month ago I planted 2 more apple trees, so now I have 2 Brambly, 1 cox and 1 Granny Smith. All are looking healthy and well and I’m looking forward to getting some apples this year!

Last week, for my birthday, we took a trip to the Rocky Mountain Garden Centre near Shepton Mallet. I really recommend this place for good value trees. (Those 2 apple trees were only £12 each and are about 6 foot tall. (The other 2 I got through Freecycle last year)). I chose 6 Himalayan Silver Birch trees – the variety with the really white trunks, and they were £18 each and about 8-9 foot tall. We paid £7.50 to have them delivered.

We also bought some pond liner for 2 symmetrical square ponds, and I spent the rest of my birthday digging! Two days later and the ponds were dug and the trees were planted. Although I half filled them with water from the water butt, it’s just typical that we haven’t had any rain for ages. I’ve been buying bags of bark every time I go to the garden centre, and the area is gradually looking more like a woodland garden rather than a wild garden.

I’m really pleased with the way it looks now. All I need is some rain; some frogs and some water plants. Oh and some seating so I can relax and enjoy it.

Garden,

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
