Debbie's Garden

You may remember that I am helping my friend Debbie create a dog friendly garden.  She has very sensibly decided to concentrate on one area at a time as her garden is a little large to think about all at once.  An added benefit is that the costs are also spread. 

Here are the latest photos from Debbie after she planted all the plants she recently bought.  The area certainly is starting to look like a garden :). 

Note that she is still restricting canine access to the area using sheep fencing while the plants establish.  This may not be necessary if you are only planting a couple of plants, but with a brand new bed like this, it makes sense to let the plants establish a little before she trains the dogs that the bed is her area not theirs.

Hi Finuala

I had no idea how many plants we arrived home with last week, I thought about 50, but they are all planted (and counted) now and it was 66!!!!

I just have a Morello cherry left to plant that I am going to try and fan train on the fence.

From Debbie – plants for her new garden.  See the thread for the story so far of the new canine friendly garden she is creating.

Just a quickie…… on way home with a full caravan – see photo!!!!!!!

If you look carefully, you can see the inside view of a caravan amidst all these plants

Hi Finuala

I have made arrangements today for our first nursery visiting trip – and I am EXCITED!!!

The main purpose of the trip is to visit Paul Whittaker plants:

 This is one of the nurseries I had hoped to visit at the end of last year. I have spoken to Paul today and he came across as really helpful and knowledgeable. He has asked me to email him a plan with dimensions, aspects etc. and some photos of the area I am wanting to plant so that he can offer me appropriate advice and suggestions when we visit.

He runs the nursery with his wife, and they are both doggie people so hopefully we will be on the same wavelength!!!

 Keep watching this space!!

 Best wishes
