I came here because I wanted to ask advice about employing a gardener. I believed a lot more could be done with our flower beds and grass areas, but only wanted someone who we could express our ideas to, and who would make them reality.
I posted about not liking our grass areas being well mowed and wishing we could do more with some of the areas. This in turn made me wonder what would be involved if we decided to plant wild flower seeds on one of the smaller areas. I even found a site with different packs according to location/type of soil.
Then realised I had already made this mistake with bushes we are planning to plant on another small plot of land - gone for the easy option. So decided to look what was in the relevant pack and see if I could come up with a better option, by mixing my own. Only I have no idea what I'm reading or what it means.
HELLO PEOPLE!! I wanted advice not inspiration.
So off I went and discussed the idea with the estate manager who thinks the idea is great and has told me to let me know how much and he will pay for it out of petty cash. I reckon we could try it out for between £10 and £15, and if successful we have identified a larger piece of land we could expand the idea on.
So there you have it, the great killer of flora now wants to create a mini pasture of wild flowers. And with all the passion I show in any project I take on which I am now committed to condemn innocent seeds to a promising life of death. Well not that bad as I won't actually be attending them.
And its all your fault, yes you. I think it is time for you to redeem yourselves, so if anyone can suggest a good book about English wild flowers I can get out of the library, or website I would greatly appreciate it.
