Counting on … day 1:035

4th February 2023

Even without wilding your garden, be a green gardener. Avoid the use of pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilisers. Don’t cut the grass too short especially when dry weather is likely. Opt for hand rather than power tools – and keep fit. Set up and use a compost heap. Veer away from using plastics – plant pots, lawn edgings, etc. Install a water butt (there are few choices here other than plastic). Avoid concrete and other hard surfaces and opt for surfaces that allow water to drain and the earth to breath.
