So are you looking out at your garden at the moment and thinking, ugh it looks like one big drab, empty patch of mud, which is so depressing. Well it doesn’t have to be like that, even in winter. I promise, it’s not that hard to make a big difference if you follow a few simple rules.
Boy the winter has arrived in the last week! We’ve started feeding the birds but what else can we do to support the wildlife and hopefully increase the biodiversity, in our gardens without compromising on the look?
This blog is a radical departure from the norm, however so many people in the last week have mentioned The Apprentice – episode 7: Urban Gardening, I felt compelled to comment.
I am familiar with the Royal Mile, having grown up in the Edinburgh environs. However I have to admit I know little of the history of the area or anything about the existence of any gardens. Whilst planning our Edinburgh Festival visit, my Mother came across the ‘Secret Gardens of the Royal Mile Tour’ by Greenyonder Tours, so we decided check it out.
