Long overdue update

Well I thought it was high time i started blogging again. It seems despite the best of intentions I just dont seem to have found any time to keep the blog more up to date.

Now with a new season ahead i shall endeavor to keep you posted on developments in my garden, and perhaps provide a summary of the past few months since i last posted to the blog.

They do say that in gardens and for gardeners New Years Day is not January 1st but October 1st. Its the true start of autumn, summer (and its drought) is over and its time to start sorting the garden out, to ensure it looks its best over the coming seasons. This is the ideal time to plant anew and make changes to existing plantings, while the soil is warm and moist. I for one will be busy over the next few weeks doing just that, sorting out all the planting problems that have manifested themselves over the summer, and refreshing areas that have become rather tired. It will also enable me to plant out some of the new plants i grew from seed last spring, and have been caring for over the summer.

When possible i shall try to post a weekly update, adding photos where appropriate.

Thats all for now. Be back soon.
