Just gardening: spring has finally sprung

Just gardening: spring has finally sprung

Despite all of our ongoing concerns and enforced restrictions, Mother Nature stands still for nothing

Over the next few month’s, we’re going to publish some bitesize pieces of all things gardening. We'll be looking at what needs to be done, provide simple tips and we shall also be taking a look back in history – you will find it all here so please keep coming back.

Just gardening: spring has finally sprungToday, I want to share with you a snippet, from the book ‘Wood and Garden’, written by Getrude Jekyll. Born in 1843, Jekyll is one of the true greats of garden design and she also wrote many books in which she liked to paint a picture with her descriptive writing. In this particular piece, Jekyll expressed her feelings for ‘arranging plants and trees and grassy spaces that they look happy and at home…a garden so treated gives the delightful feeling of repose and refreshment’. Being amongst nature, especially in spring, can give you so much joy and hope as well as exercise and fresh air. A place that can make you feel happy. 

    Set aside an area for flowers to add colour to your life...  

If you are lucky enough to have a garden to escape to, then think about how you can transform, tidy and refresh it, making it a place that will give you hope during this dark time. Set aside an area for flowers to add colour to your life and a home for returning insects including our wonderful bees and butterflies.

Whilst you are thinking about your garden you may need to consider what supplies you will need – take a look on-line for companies that offer home deliveries.
