Mulch ado...

In response to November’s Garden Diary, and following this summer’s drought, I concur with all recommended plants suggested and would like to add Nepeta Sp (catmint), which I have found thrives during dry conditions.

I am now dividing my existing stock to put elsewhere in the garden. In addition, I only watered pots and not flowerbeds.

All pruning and cutback of plants was directly returned to the ground as mulch in addition to the homemade compost. All plants have survived and I have found the soil in excellent order despite many weeks without rain.
