Growing – the pain & pleasure

The pains taking process of clearing the site was now approaching its first anniversary. Enough progress had been made to enable us to concentrate on preparing a few small patches for planting. It was a great feeling to reach this first mile stone. We were finally putting something in rather than taking it out.

This was about to become the Herb Garden. The old climbing rose agreed to oversee this part of the project.

Karen and Roy decide to create a ‘holding bed’ to receive the influx of wonderful plants which kept popping up around the garden. The retreating brambles and self-seeders may have had something to do with it. All that remained  of the old Orchard House, was the brick borders of the beds. An ideal place for the ‘holding bed’. It just needed a little bit of weeding.
