Waddles & Hazels

Waddles & Hazels

Life has been getting just a little bit busy  recently and I am very glad to grab my mini mission basket, prepared earlier this year and head out into the garden for just the odd 5 – 10 minutes.   If you are short on time you don’t need to miss out on some garden therapy!  What is in my little basket at this time of the year you may ask?  Well, secateurs; gardening gloves; strips of old nylon stocking for plant ties; my trusty hook for those weeds & a plastic bag for same.

So, what exactly can you do with just the odd 5 minutes.  Well, quite a lot!  With your trusty mini mission basket in hand trip on out into the garden for a little browse.  Snip off dead heads on roses or dahlias or any other plants that need similiar treatment.  Maybe treat yourself to a bunch to bring inside every few days. 

Check soil for dampness at root level, with your finger of course and water if soil is dry.  It is a good idea to add some yummy worm poo to your water in the watering can or perhaps some seaweed extract.  Your plants absolutely love, love, love that!  We aim to please them!

Don't forget to smell the roses

Pull out the odd weed or two.  Then steal a few more minutes from your very busy day to linger in your garden enjoying its sensual delights.  Listen to the birds, quiet your mind and last but not least smell the roses!

Happy gardening!
