Garden started in 2002

Updated: Sep 16, 2022

From a field that dairy cows grazed on , to 20 years later we have a plot which is wild life friendly a hedge that grows blackthorne for sloes, Rosa rugosa for rose hips, hazel for nuts, and brier rose for some colour. On the right side of the plot is an orchard of 14 different fruit trees, with fruit cage in the middle, and a poly tunnel and veg plot on the left. My role in all of this is too buy plants and harvest the produce, hubby John bless him looks after it all, a gardener from young with a mountain of knowledge , from his flower garden through to the fruit and veg.

I will blog from month to month on what’s growing and what I shall do with it. At the moment the garden plot is just stirring in to spring, and we have our daphne “ Atlantica” in full bloom, it started in December and goes right through to April.

How wonderful to have such a great piece of land. It sounds a little like where I lived in England, there was a field right behind the house and a lot of wild plants grew. Our garden wasn't so large and my ex wasn't any kind of gardener though. Any flowers we planted were all by me and I didn't know very much so mostly threw down seeds or planted annuals, but we had sloes and damsons and blackberries growing at the back by the fields and our neighbours were all older and had wonderful gardens.

I look forwards to seeing how your garden changes over the year. Do you have any wildlife you have to contend with? We hav…

We had a bad mole problem but only for one year, I think they came in the first place because of the cicadas. We have the 13 year and 17 year cycle cicadas in our area and as they become bigger and get ready to tunnel out of the ground it brings in animals that like to eat them. When they hatched (a horrible summer full of buzzing cicadas) the lack of food probably moved the moles on.
