Today we had a day of communal mowing and weeding around the Christsmas Trees. BD and I have been mowing around our commercial Christmas trees for two weekends running. Today he and James Jnr. went and mowed some more – we have a couple of acres – while I weeded the Christmas trees that have been potted up in the Walled Garden.
You see, we used to have a proportion of the Christmas trees potted up in October, but 50% died. We decided to plant a number of them straight into the pots! How clever was that? They are doing really well and as you can see from my special photos they are now 80% weed free, the last little bit will be done tomorrow. Promise!!! Well, or perhaps Friday or the weekend……………………..
