Rose Beds Coming Back To Life


Tuesday 22 April, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Regular followers may recall the efforts over winter at rejuvenating the rose beds. Well, three months down the line and all seems to be progressing quite well. The addition of cow poo, goat poo, wood shavings from my chainsaw and wood ash from the log burner seem to have done the trick.






Time will tell if the work to create mini sections stops the over-drying when temps hit 45 in summer – watch this space I guess. At least for now, the earth is better, has more nutrients and can breathe. I’m no professional gardener, and mildew and black-spot are ‘features’ for us, but when you are surrounded by farms, open meadows and orchards, it is near on impossible to maintain a sterile environment. Anyway, we’ll go for ‘as nature intended’…
