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
- a place to grow
- A place to pause and enjoy
- Water feature to encourage wildlife
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.
