Storm Damage : The repair

A quick repair to the damaged fence

Calling in reinforcements

The story so far

Storm Damage!

A short-term fix

With the help of a handy family member – someone with some competence in DIY (unlike myself) and equipped with some appropriate tools – I’ve spent the day putting the garden back together. This is a temporary fix to re-secure the boundaries pending a more permanent fix.

He also cut the massive hedge that makes the rear border of our garden. We came up with a bartering system (or skills-share as is the more popular term currently) whereby I agreed to prune his old and neglected apple tree and he would prune my hedge.

UPDATE: See how the repair looked

Storm Damage: Recovery

Planning for better times

Looking forward to summer, I’ve potted up some bare-root hardy geraniums. These were an offer from Thompson & Morgan where they were free if you pay the postage (worked out about £1 per plant which seemed acceptable to me).

Hardy geraniums arrive bare root and ready to be resurrected
