The Honeywood garden project has now been running for 18 months. It feels like progress has been rather slow. Some of the beds have been cleared and new safety barriers erected around the culvert and well. The planting of two of the largest beds was to have taken place this spring but personal circumstances prevented this happening. I am glad we didn’t try to plant in early summer as it is now so hot and dry that I think we would be struggling to keep the plants alive. However, the lack of plants is frustrating, and we will work towards doing this in early autumn. I think if this happens it will feel like a bit of a breakthrough: the garden will have some new planting at last. Hopefully the next six months will see a lot more progress than the last six.
