It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

"Winter Draws On!"


Leaves are falling really fast now as the temperatures are plummeting so ~ time to put on the tree fern's winter coat. Contrary to Monty, I cut off all the fronds and tie them round as extra insulation before adding a layer of horticultural blanket followed by a topping of straw, an upturned plastic pot saucer (to prevent water freezing in its crown) a shopping bag and lastly, a hessian coffee sack. Et voila!! Well it worked perfectly last winter in all the snow and ice!
