I have a few thoughts about this area of my garden. For one thing the wooden raised beds are rotting, so they need replacing so…
do I buy a greenhouse or potting shed and have a couple of smaller metal raised beds in front of it. There is enough space, but I do have the conservatory so is this a waste of money?
do I create a natural pond? In which case I shall need to get someone in to do that as all that digging is beyond me now. And I am a little worried that it might attract the rats from the farmyard next door.
redesign the raised beds and also plant a crab apple tree and incorporate a seat where I can enjoy the views.
For now though here are six things in the herb bed on a Saturday.
Tulbaghia violacea, known as society garlic has suddenly burst into flower. It usually flowers much earlier, but has been quite poor until now. Obviously the recent rain has made a dramatic difference.
Whatever I decide to do I shall definitely keep a herb bed.
