Gardeners Illustrated April is on sale now and my garden is featured in it! I knew this was going to happen of course, but still the very moment you have the magazine in hand, then you are really on cloud nine....
I have to return quickly to earth though. A garden woman featuring in Gardeners Illustrated needs to work hard in her garden!
Last week I took on a part of the lawn in the back yard. This gets very little light and therefore it struggles growing. So, I have decided to lay new turf.
Easier said than done though. Preparing the soil is a lot of work. First digging up the aria and breaking down large clumps. Of course I had to remove all weeds. After that, I shuffled back and forth with my boots to firm the soil. Finally you will have to rake the soil. After all this preparation, the turf can be laid. You should immediately water the turf a plentiful.
The advantage of laying turf instead of sowing grass, is that you can immediately enjoy a green lawn. After all the hard labour I look at my work with satisfaction.
My garden in an English garden magazine ...... I muse and I am floating back on my cloud again, albeit with hands dirty of mud and clay.....
The life of a garden woman is not only glitz and glam!
