With a new year starting many people take up resolutions: become fitter, eat healthier and perhaps rekindle those friendships that have been allowed to drift.
Other people take this opportunity to plan the year ahead: when to take holidays, achievements to complete or learning a new skill.
As a gardener – though probably more a novice gardener than anything else – I like to plan ahead. My 2014 gardening resolution are to get a raised grow bed to start my own vegetable patch and plant flower bulbs, particularly wildlife and bee friendly bulbs.
- Julia: To work towards being employed by a certain holiday company as a Garden Tour Guide which I will excel at and enthuse loads of keen gardening folk.
- May: I will be rearranging my garden to help the wildlife to have more space, and for me to be able to handle now I am into my mid 70s. so a very busy year ahead . A happy new year to you to.x thanks for your spot on FB , keeps me sane in a world in turmoil.
- Sarah: Planting up my new raised bed with loads of veg. Have already planted garlic in pots.
- Gill: Make the best use of my new polytunnel. Do more weeding. Work out how to stop the rabbits and other wildlife eating everything I plant. Make our very small front garden into a space that is nice to be in.
- Paul: To win all classes on allotments with giant veg tired of just winning 5 of the classes.
- Karen: To put all my tools in one place so that I don’t have to spend ages searching for them
- Peter: Rebuild the fence that got blown down last week.
- Roddy: Trying to cram a prairie planting scheme into a tiny garden. I already have the rudbeckia, echinaceas and heleniums. I need to get some tall grasses and asters. Can anyone recommend an aster that isn’t too vigorous? I had one last year that just took over the whole garden…
- Sue: A complete makeover. But with an acre of garden I will have my work cut out.
- Sam: Make the very best of what ever the British weather has in store for us and enjoy the pleasures of gardening to the fullest!
- Lisa: Hopefully finishing off the back garden that we started last year.
