This weekend I managed to pick up a second hand wormery from Gumtree, a bargin at only £12, they are £64 new! It didnt come with any worms so Ive sent off for a starter kit, hopefully this will help us to recycle all or kitchen waste and give us some great organic plant feed, Im also excited about the idea of getting worms through the post! Next on the wish list it chickens!
The fanned fruit trees up on the lawn are all ok but one, the cherry which seemed fine all last year suddenly died end of the summer, I waited till the spring to see if it might come back but no, fire wood! So I've replaced it with an Apricot, I have never successfully grown one but really wanted to try again. Ours is from the wonder Victoriana Nursery Gardens, their stuff is always the best and I love coming home and finding a 'Live Plants' parcel waiting for me!
