Planting in action

Week 12 – Planting in action

Gardening is not known as an adrenaline filled pastime. This is as good an ‘action’ shot as you’re ever really going to see. But just in case anyone wanted to see behind the scenes, this is the reality. Mud, compost, plants, spades, a wheelbarrow and lots of plastic pots. In fact that’s actually one of our pet hates. Plastic pots. As opposed to throwing them away we try keep all the pots so Alan can re-use them to pot on the next batch of plugs and 1L plants. Surely this is the least we should all be doing in order to do our small part in reducing unnecessary land fill. Better still let’s start to see a complete rejection of plastic pots and move to an effective biodegradable replacement. Now there’s a good business plan. In the meantime we’re going to push on and finish this monumental planting job. After all the sunshine has arrived.
