As we start a New Year, it's time to tidy up and assess our gardens, and clean up after the recent welcome rains. The only drawback I can see to finally having a little wet weather is that it will rejuvenate the snail and slug population in my garden. Disposing of those slimy buggers is definitely my LEAST favorite gardening task! What is yours?
I love having an abundance of flower bulbs in the garden because they afford an easy way for a prolonged blooming season that lasts about 10 months. However, thinning, dividing and finding new spaces to replant all those bulbs is a real chore, especially in a mature garden. I feel guilty throwing bulbs out, so sharing with friends is the best option.
