Well we have been very busy this Easter, we have had 3 mend work over 2 days delivering 40 tonnes of road planings , spreading and rolling them. We decided to dig out some areas and put a deeper layer of planings down as some areas such as around the stables and water butt couldn’t cope with just a surface layer of planings. The exciting thing is where we dug out the earth we could make our mound bigger, so now we have a lovely big mound for the horses to play on. We have fenced it off at the moment to let the earth settle and to grow herbs and wild flowers on there.
As you can see on my previous posts we have planted roses that will grow into a large dense bush , we have this weekend planted Lavender, Thyme and Rosemary the opposite side of the track. We have also cut some Willow whips that we will plant up in a few days after we have soaked them for a few days in water (this water will have the Willow growth hormones in and will be fantastic to use on other plants)
A productive Easter at Fountain Cottage.
