Making Meadows

Meadows present a natural, seemingly effortless beauty, with an undeniable allure.  For the most part, meadow guardians save much of the energy that gardeners spend repeatedly mowing and maintaining traditional lawns.  Nevertheless, meadows are not an easy option; creating a meadow requires endeavour, careful planning, and time, to ensure success.

Perennial meadow plants

Our native British, perennial meadow plants flourish in poor soils, where they grow contentedly alongside sedately-growing, fine-leaved grasses. 

 I am often asked for my feedback and recommendations for garden tools.  Lately I have received many questions from readers who are looking to purchase tools that will help to make weeding easier.  Many gardeners have told me that they’re looking to remove tough weeds in gravel driveways, on steep, sloping ground, or weeds growing in difficult, hard to reach areas.
