8 May : Weeds


The gardening year has had a slow start hereabouts. There are reasons outside my control such as freezing cold weather, reasons which are unavoidable such as gallivanting in Spain and reasons which are entirely within my control such as idleness. However, there has been a positive outcome of this neglect which is that I have identified my gardening style: I am a wild gardener creating little havens where native plants can flourish. Hate me but I'm telling you - I'm riding the zeitgeist.

    1. I am a small scale eco-warrior - in fact many of my plant arrive by wind energy (dandelions).

  8. Yes I have native goose grass, green alkanet, herb Robert, wood avens, bramble and bindweed, flourishing in my wild garden. This is a very helpful identification site http://www.gardenwithoutdoors.org.uk/weed_guide
