Throughout the summer I have been very busy with my new 'round' in Cringleford with 6 additional gardens to mow, trim and weed. I am still maintaining the garden in Wimbledon and all of my 'original' gardens from when I first started.
In June I was asked to clear and re-plant a long border in Gorleston. The owners wanted a traditional cottage garden border. However, their soil is fairly sandy and needed improving. Luckily, a local farmer has some very well rotted muck, and was happy to deliver 4 tons of it. Around half of it was dug into the border which provided a good mix to plant into
The clients were really please with their new border. However, when standing admiring it the next evening, a Muntjac deer was spotted looking rather greedily at all the new shoots!
After seemingly weeks of dry weather, with the lawns turning yellow, today it has finally rained, and in fact the forecast is for the same all day. This is much needed and will hopefully perk everything up in the garden.
