Spring is almost here and now is the time for planning what is to be grown in the garden. I have started at the bottom of the garden, where the fertility is still not too good and so I am having a big push with the ‘no dig’ method of gardening. The area I started with took one compost bins worth of compost and some worm compost, quite a few news papers and one bale of hay. The hay I bought for £3 from a local farmer. In that area I also planted one apple and one cherry tree. I was going to remove a very small hazel/cob tree I planted last year but it has produced some buds and so has had a reprieve this year!
I have another compost bin to empty and this should be sufficient for the other area of the garden that needs attention.The picture below show the area to be worked on.
