Down with convolvulus
Down with convolvulus, creeping buttercup and slugs. Arise, the new garden bed: globe artichokes, New Zealand cranberry, garlic chives, thyme and oregano. Around all of this I have sown alyssum. Everything is transplanted (mostly divided up) from other parts of the garden except the NZ cranberry. I bought one of these a few years ago but made the mistake of planting it on a corner where the children were forever falling off their bikes directly onto it. So for the princessly sum of $5.95 plus a lot of weeding and digging labour, I have a lovely new garden bed. The poles and hoops are from when I first created this plot three years ago and had ideas of growing peas and beans up it. They never worked but it's more hassle to take them off than to work with them now.
