In the quiet that is settling now in the garden, the rush of the hedge replanting and the planting of bulbs, the sowing of wild flowers being complete, it’s nice to observe nature taking on its late autumn colours. At Botanic bay, I’m still waiting for the Liquidambar to turn red, but in the meantime, this Acer palmatum takes all the looks, positioned as it is near the decking in the front garden. With the conifer hedge now removed, the suns catches the many sides of its leaves and makes it shine even redder than I thought before.
Another bright sunny afternoon, still no sign of rain… and Hubby who is willing to fertilize his green bit of land ! You are English with that viceral obsession of a lush green grass, or you’re not trully English ! But the question arising this year, is to use an eco friendly type of fertilizer, one with slow nitrogen release capsules and absolutely non phosphorus, but still, is this type of fertilizer dog friendly ?
Any comments on how you fertilize your grass – if you care !, is most welcome.
