Despite having no rain for what seems like months the front garden is doing very well. I have been watering with ‘grey water’ aka bath water which I lug out every few days….
With the exception of the borage (blew over and had rust) I haven’t lost any plants.
My hedgehogs don’t seem to have any problems walking over the gravel and despite Kevin the gardener’s prediction that the gravel would become a cat toilet it hasn’t…..but it has become a fox toilet….
There are still a few gaps but hopefully by next spring they will be filled.
