• Weaving my Way

    After three years, the woven silver birch edging to the path through my woodland garden had all but disappeared so I got myself a couple of large bundles of birch twigs and spent a very happy afternoon weaving it around the existing supporting posts. It is (I think) an inexpensive and attractive way to make an informal path, especially as the path itself is made from shredded twigs and branches from the garden. I’ve also been putting twiggy plant supports in place around tall growing herbaceous plants and making twig wigwam for the clematis.
