I am all for easy gardening.
I love flowers and plants and luscious gardens.
As a child we had a concrete back yard with just a tiny bit of garden but what we did have my mum tended with real love and attention. I recall lily of the valley, snowdrops, big and fragrant yellow and pink English roses, crocuses and hydrangeas. Huge hanging baskets would overspill their gorgeous petunias and fuscia pots were everywhere. Bless her she she made the little we had in all aspects of our life wonderful.
I am time short and at the moment quite physically limited in what I can do so I need to keep it simple. We have a horrible bamboo in our garden that spreads like wildfire. Each year it just pops back. We have had no clue what to do.
Last year my good friend Jen tried a garden on a roll form, Homebase where basically you get sent all you need to make a fab border including a map!
Well Homebase also do a garden on a roll raised bed . You get bio-degradable paper plan; bio-degradable pegs; plastic pots for plants, wooden handle for trowel with steel head, cardboard box.Plants with aromatic foliage, scented and colourful flowers, tactile leaves and grasses with movement also some edible plants.
Sounds easy doesn’t it. Maybe plonking that on top will solve our bamboo problem? I would be grateful for any other simple bamboo bashing ideas!
