I know, I know…It’s been a long time since I posted last. And it wasn’t through a lack of wanting to. I can assure you that I did, but I just didn’t find the time and I had lots of other bits and pieces going on.
Now I think it’s time to post again and to try and keep up with it a little more regularly this time around. Think of it like a Spring clean, but for doing things. Kind of like a delayed New Year’s resolution.
There are lots of jobs that need doing now that it’s Spring time in gardening season here in the UK. I was reading this great post with some how to guides the other day and would highly recommend you have a look at it.
Some of the ideas in there are truly inspirational. And another place to turn to for truly inspirational ideas, as always, is the tried and tested site of the RHS. They break down the gardening season into months, with ideas, tips, suggestions and things that you should be doing in each month of the year to make your garden look beautiful all year round.
And talking of garden design, check out this garden design post. It’s really comprehensive and packed with ideas and some cool info-graphics to help you do some DIY jobs around your garden.
But back to the Spring part…
I’ve started to tidy up the house a little more as I’m kind of old-school and like to do a traditional Spring clean. I think it’s a nice way to start a new season.
I was using some hedge trimmers from a company called GTech last year and found them to be really good. They’re electric and cordless. I love the idea of using electric garden power tools because it seems more economical.
We are starting to produce more and more of our energy now through solar, wind and other renewable sources so it seems like the best way to go. Correct me if you think I’m wrong on this…?
Anyway…Back to the cleaning. I was so impressed by the GTech that another one of their creations caught my eye, too. It’s a vacuum cleaner and again cordless and electric. It’s called the GTech Air Ram in this review and they make some good points. Dyson do a similar one but I think the GTech is better looking and a little cheaper.
The one I have is the mark 2 version, just so you know. Seems well worth it to buy that rather than the 1st version.
Back in the Garden
So, now the house is clean and the garden is ready to have some jobs done it’ll be full steam ahead planting, pruning, cutting and shaping the hedges to make them look good.
I’ve noticed a lot of growth and with the warmer days now approaching quickly it’ll be time to garden in a t-shirt and shorts in no time at all.
Here are some nice ideas of what to do in March.
