New Weed Policy

I have learnt a harsh lesson in recent days.

It’s about communication.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I would invest some time in improving the flower display in my rear garden.

This involved a trip to Cadnam garden centre, buying seeds, trays and the necessary growing compost.

I have a small greenhouse, so carefully set everything up and regularly watered the seed trays for 3-4 weeks before “potting on” and then finally, transferring them to the garden when I thought that the danger of frost had passed.

Unfortunately, I failed to communicate what I had done to another family member (who shall remain nameless).

As a result, I venture out into my garden to check on progress only to find that all of my efforts have been undone by somebody who thought “they would do a bit of weeding”!!!

Agghhh…. and I only have myself to blame.

My new weed policy is to improve my communication.
