Gardening As Relaxtion

I am finding gardening very relaxing and I do love a potter in the garden , I don't have acres and acres but I have a nice enough space to play about with and one think I won't compromise on is losing my lawn even though I don't mow it.I am slowly planting up the garden more and more and my approach to garden is to plant things where I think they will be best suited with Covid and lockdown this has brought a tighsqueeze on the garden spending due to a cut in my husband wages.

When we go to the garden centre I always back a beeline to the reduced section and more often or not I do come away with a plant or 3 but I always stick to a budget or you could go albsoteldy bananas .I have always been given tomato plants from my neighbour which have faired well but as a tomato parent I was worried at first that they were not fruiting and I had my neighbour baffled but hey didi need fruit. I learnt that tomatoes fruit from the bottom upwards and I have been feeding my tomatoes and while my neighbour was peering over the fence myself and myself moved the tomatoes to a more sunny spot.

The other area of the the garden I have been working on is the the area near the apple tree which sadly dropped all its apples over the months but I am hopeful for next year because well you do have to be hopeful.

I’ve been planting the garden up with bulbs and some have come from Lidl and some from B & M and yes sometimes it’s a case of you get what you pay for .Buy I’m willing to take a chance on them , I think plants are like people and sometimes you’ve just got to take a chance on them.
