6. Variety is the spice of life

Especially when it comes to your garden. It needs to be a balance of wheat you need and what nature needs, and what applies to you applies to nature.

We all need:

  • A place to rest and relax
  • A place to eat
  • A place to entertain
  • Colour
  • a place to grow
  • A place to pause and enjoy
  • Textures
  • Water feature to encourage wildlife
  • Shade

I am currently growing 3 different hydrangeas from cuttings. A climbing lace cap Hydrangea petiolaris, a beautiful purple hydrangea with dark leaves Hydrangea macrophylla, a white one, and a blue one!

When they are big enough I will take cuttings from them. I know that hydrangeas can change colour depending on the soil so I will have to keep them separate till they get better. Hydrangeas love a bit of shade and lots and lots of water. So I will plant them near the water butts so they will be happy healthy plants.

I am growing lots of different flowers over the next two years, I am not afraid of a bit of colour, I am excited about companion planting and I won’t be indulging in pesticides as I have a dog and love bees.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
