Suddenly, I’ve become addicted to creating miniature rock gardens. It’s less than a week since I set up my first stone basin rockery and, so pleased am I with my efforts that I sallied forth to the garden centre, with ma belle chauffeuse, this afternoon to obtain a (faux) stone trough. We also took the opportunity to stock up on multi-purpose compost and some coarse grit, to mix in with it, for the Alpine plants that we also acquired.
The effort involved was ample to send my sweat glands into overdrive; that’s quite easily achieved these days but, I really enjoyed getting my hands dirty!
A good top dressing of coarse grit, on this mini rock garden, should manage to give any snails that manage to scale the trough walls a sore undercarriage, hopefully a sufficient deterrent!
Other aspects of my days endeavours will be recorded by Sinna Luvva, stamina permitting.
