Week 16 – Maintenance
This week I returned to Nottingham to check on one of our living walls. We like to return to each installation every three months to top up the liquid feed, monitor the health and progress of the plants and to undertake any pruning or plant replacement as required. This particular wall is now into it’s second year, is in fine health and starting to mature nicely. The hydrangea are putting on a bit of scale, the Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’ (or slender sweet flag) is forming a striking sweep, the ferns are romping away and the hellebores are very happy indeed. If the plants are happy, then I’m happy and that usually means the client is happy too. As Alan is fond of saying – JD (job done).
