Down the Garden Path...
Now is the time to dust off your wellies, tidy your trugs and untangle the garden twine.. With an early Spring this year, gardens up and down the land are looking gloriously rich with plentiful blooms. The warm weather of April made us forget the arctic winter and our plants showed willing by shooting up and growing at a rate of knots. Unfortunately this also included the weeds which put on a race to break the record for the biggest explosion of Dandelions we have seen for many a year.
Chelsea Flower show each May has many keen gardeners salivating over Salvias, palpitating over Peonies and swooning over sweet smelling Roses.. not to mention fretting over snails and all the ruin that they can do to your prize blooms overnight. Whether you are an armchair gardener or a hands on gardener, Milly & Dottie have several floral lovelies in the emporium to whet the appetite for green fingered pursuits..
Scatter some seeds around your border and fill the garden with blooms that the bees will love you for ...
To aide your planting schemes .. flick through the pages of this lovely book ..
To keep those pesky moths at bay.. pop one of these pretty Lavender sachets in your knicker drawer or a pocket in your wardrobe, to leave a scent of an English garden ..
Lie back in your hammock and fill your mind with poetry whilst smelling the roses ...
Of course Milly & Dottie always like to put on their best Crinolines whilst pottering about in the garden..
As dear old Monty would say.. Enjoy your garden whatever the weather.
