While gardening in a walled garden set in the middle of a wood, its notable that many weeds are prolific, plants that grow around us in abundance. Obviously having weeds this does not fit well with the look of a formal walled garden, however this year we have chosen to celebrate a number of the weeds with which we are familiar with. With propagating underway we have amassed a modest amount of plant material, that as we come to the end of February will be planted out in a new bed created on the moving of old compost bins. This bed will be planted to contrast the usual seemingly random growing habit that weeds adopt, we hope that it will highlight these weeds as plants, and that they can be appreciated in a different way to usual, and of course with them being members of the local plant community, we hole that this planting will be good for the surrounding wildlife too.
