Hello My lovelies, I am posting a link that we can all look at - I have been lecturing and teaching on this for years.... We can all be aware and then make better choices; theguardian.com/environment/20 ... See MoreSee Less
Great and cheap little trick for ponds and pools alike!LIFE SAVING POOL IDEA
If you have a pool, a really nice and kind life saving idea is a rubber mat attached to the side to allow any animals to escape should they fall in. And if you think, well, I don't have any pets, perhaps you could attach one anyway rather than pulling out a dead squirrel from your pool. Such a simple idea to help local wildlife. ...

If the weeds are getting you down (despite no rain whatsoever lol), then hoe, hoe, hoe and mulch, mulch, mulch and see yesterday's post re the no dig method!

If you have not heard of Charles Dowding yet, it might be worth taking a look. He is revolutionising the way we grow with a no dig approach, preserving our soil integrity and life whilst doing so, its a much less intrusive style of gardening and a much more intuitive style of gardening. It might not feel right for some of you, but have a read and see what you think! His books are great too. #nodig#soil#bounty#harvest#energy charlesdowding.co.uk... See MoreSee Less

Dear Enchanted Gardeners, Please look at this link, its so interesting and is part of all our lives because we all shop for ourselves and our families. It just needs thinking about........ I have taken this from a twitter post from the amazing Dave Goulson who dedicates his life to the study of pollinators as a Scientist at Sussex University. Stay in touch with his work and gain valuable insights into what is current in the world of pollinating insects conservation and assistance. In all my lectures I always make the statement that without pollinators we have no future on this poorly little planet, and Dave Goulson shows this time and time again. t.co/U2X2PCEjfo...
