Grass is the cheapest plant to install and the most expensive to maintain

Grass is the cheapest plant to install and the most expensive to maintain

Today we are a few days away from Judging (Britain in Bloom 'It's your neighbourhood' competition) and there is an awful lot to do! The Blooming Old Gardener was away and they had their work cut out last Sunday on their return.

We have had some wonderful people getting involved with the garden lately, every element of the place is a testament to someone's hard work. As we have mentioned before, any help, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated. An hours weeding makes a huge difference, especially when the to do list is longer then three people's arms.

In the garden, the grass has certainly looked better, but all our watering efforts had to go on the many plants, so any rain is helping it slowly recover.

The Book Tree has now had two layers of oil and is ready to be used once more, we are currently sorting through the books and aim to properly restock by the end of this week, there might even be something nice hidden amongst the books.

Magical visitors to the garden! Andy, Isla and Caleb visited the garden and left some magic of their own. It makes us smile every time someone creates something for the garden

Butterflies have also landed in the garden! You may have noticed a lovely display of butterflies in the garden. These have been created and put into place by Change, Grow, Live, an organisation that supports those with drug and alcohol addiction. There will be more to come from these guys!

Our Britain in Bloom judging is this very Friday! Keep an eye out for all the marvellous new things being added this week, from the prehistoric to the historic and more.
