Mini forests…

With spring approaching but the soil at the Estate not quite ready to be worked, I have found myself with seedlings aplenty.  Add in a landscaping project just begun and I have plants in need of new digs, and quickly.  So what does one do?

Dig in the recycling bin, get yourself some jars and make mini-forests (terrariums).  Totally free, and for an urban-dwelling forest lover, a tiny forest to look at (instead of your torn-up patio).

In other gardening news, my replacement seeds arrived from SSE (remember THIS sad tale) and more sad news followed.  The Bowles’ Black seeds I ordered are sold out.  Maybe next year.
