Itching to get out there!
Happy New Year Forummers!
Anyone else itching to get out in the garden already?? These sunny periods we are getting at the moment are lulling me into thinking it’s good garden tidy up weather but I bet it’s freezing out there and I’d soon regret it.
I’ve been a bit out of it for the last couple of months with gall bladder problems making me feel really yuk and haven’t done any gardening since the summer really. I didn’t even get chance to “put the garden to bed” for the winter and the poor thing is in need of a good tidy up. Now I’ve had my operation, I’ve still been laid up for a good few weeks and each time I look out of the window, I can hear the secateurs calling!
So time for some inspiration! Anyone else got any big garden plans for this year? Anyone having a complete makeover? We plan to sort out the bottom bed and plant some taller shrubs etc for privacy - we have 6ft fences but at this time of year it’s bare and open. The council also took down some of the lower branches when they were doing road works (might I say, without our permission or with any kind of nod to the TPO in force grrr). So, any suggestions on tall busy shrubs would be appreciated. They’d be growing in between sycamores so quite shady. Just want to have a tall barrier there. We have 10ft or so Leylandi both sides so it makes the bottom boundary seem even worse. Look forward to any suggestions!
Thanks and happy new gardening year to everyone!
