Some time ago when I was weeding the garden, I found a piece of ivy which I dug out as it is considered a weed where I live. I also know what it can do if it gets away, it tries to smother and strangle our tree ferns and that would never do. While digging around some more, muttering about weeds, grubs, earthworms and speaking nicely to my flowers, I suddenly had an idea what I could do with the ivy and an old wire coat hanger.
There is a little way to go before I start pruning for a better shape, but we are on the way. See the plants in the left foreground, they are self sewn primulas from last winter. Don't you love it when nature does something wonderful? Have you anything growing in your garden that is self sewn? I'm sure the wonderful people in the northern hemisphere are checking their gardens daily for signs of spring.
Have a lovely day,
