Re: A view of my garden

I grow my onions from seed these days as I have had a couple of poor results from sets in the past, I have just transplanted some Ailsa Craig into the raised bed, strong looking plants.

Re: Sulphate of Potash.

Re: Wildlife pond

I intend to have some plants that will spill over the rocks to soften the edge and hide the liner, the water will still come up a few more inches as it's not up to the overflow level yet.

Quite a bit more work done around the pond today, using the excess pond liner hanging over the edges, I have created some bog plant areas.
