How does your garden grow?

Spent much of the weekend in the garden which was a "Good Thing". Mary planted lots of bedding plants and other growing things to beautify the garden. Including two new, wooden, half-barrel tubs as the old ones had self destructed into excellent staves for the fire. I did things I have been wanting to do for ages like:

  • stake out the Kilmarnock willow that was doing a "Leaning tower of Pisa" act

  • attach a guy rope to one branch of the new plum tree to encourage it to grow in a symmetrical formation

  • install grow-bags and canes for the tomatoes (planting in 2 weeks time)

  • put in bean poles for the the broad beans (three sets of three pyramidal arrangements)
