Friday Flora & Fauna
Well bloggers, it’s time to get the spade out and throw some shape on that quagmire excuse for a garden. Every year I think the same thing, I’m going to fill it in with gravel and deck the edges, it’s just a bit of bog anyway. But then I don’t get around to it and end up doing a quick tidy up and sure I’ll cut the grass at some stage (probably when it’s up to the kids knees). But this year I’m going to make an extra effort and plant a load of wildflowers. “Biodiversity starts at home”, hmm could be a good title for a proposal. Wildflower seed mixes are readily available in most garden centres but if you really want to keep it native try searching for Wildflowers Ireland or have a look at the Irish Seed Saver Association website for fruit n veg. Now I must plant out that Holly, a gift from Coillte four years ago, the Oak rescued from Coole can wait another year.
