Checking On My Plants In The Garden
Hello My Green-Fingered Friends,
I wanted to give a garden update on how my plants are doing in the garden before winter kicks in. My plants here will stay outside for the whole winter and I have given them some special fertiliser to help them during this time.
I don't have too many plants and I try to keep the garden (front and back) as simple and low maintenance as I can. Although next year I am thinking to add some plant beds and expand a little.
I am also wanting to create a row alongside my neighbors that could grow and give some privacy in the future. I was looking to buy some plants or maybe take some cuttings from my existing ones and see if they will grow instead.
A job for next spring will be to remove the weeds growing between the stones and to trim the "Buchsbaum", I think that is box tree in English. I was discussing the Buchsbaum with another fellow green-fingered friend and they mentioned in this area there is a blight for these plants and we get infestations from insects, so we shouldn't have them here. Therefore at some point, I will need to replace them with something else.
They are in the front of the house, therefore I would need something that stays green throughout the year as it would look nice. I will make a field trip around the neighboring houses to show you what other people have and maybe this could give some inspiration.
Thanks for reading.
Nice! You have a very manicured garden :)
