Your Gardening Resolutions for 2014

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.

We recently asked on Facebook what everyone else’s gardening plans for 2014 are and got some great answers:

  • 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.

What are your plans for this year?
