I have been very quiet about our London garden of late and deliberately so, for progress on the new woodland garden has been painfully slow. With a much needed holiday looming, the pressure is really on to get it completed. The army of new and old plants will wait no longer to get into their new quarters, especially as there’s no-one to mollycoddle them in our absence. So the metal edges are in and tomorrow the gravel arrives. Starting after we get home from work, we’ll be laying paths and planting until after dark.
