Re-plan and re-plant

On the one hand the plot is looking tidy and ordered; nice raised beds, paths mulched and looking good. There’s just one big problem with this and it’s STRAIGHT LINES! I don’t do straight lines and order and neither does nature! I want my plants to roam a bit and seed where the fancy takes them, I want to have wavy edges and sinuous lines, vegetables overlapping with fruit and flowers, room for a pond and somewhere to sit. The boards must go and the paths too. In will go fertility builders like comfrey and clover, space for compost making, herbs like lavender, marjoram and mint, lots of annuals sown around like nigella and marigolds, nasturtiums and poached egg plants, phacelia for the bees and sunflowers too. Willow weaving will begin once Christmas is over…fedge and archway, arbour and seat.

The boards have to go!
