The garden has an old and quite large damson tree which fruits and which is also enjoyed by the squirrels. But of course it creates shade. And because of the walls on two sides of the garden I am challenged by snails and slugs. I am starting to think what I can do with the space under the tree.
The project to renovate the London garden has progressed very slowly – ‘life’ intervened. However, I now have a plan for the garden, and I have started work, stripping out almost everything back to the ground. Shrubs have been cut out, and the overgrown box bushes, and now I am tackling the invasive ivy, a few hours every day.
