Gardening is a funny thing.
Some people go to a lot of trouble and expense, and fair play to ’em. I’m more of a hack things back when they get a bit overgrown kind of gardener. Not that I don’t spend the odd bob or two but usually on potted plants that are easy to shift around and even easier to weed.
A house near us built an extension a while ago. They went to a lot of trouble and expense laying out Seedum matting on part of the roof. I looked into the costs of doing my own flat roof but it was prohibitive. Never mind. I can live with the sea of pebbles.
But then Seedum started growing amongst my pebbles. Obviously my roof had been infected by the other roof. No sweat.
We have had a drop of fine weather for the last couple of days and our terrace [Herself calls it our patio, for some reason] is absolutely covered in these fine whispey things like miniature tumbleweed. Seedum seeds!
I swept them all up into a bucket and have every intention of scattering them on my flat roof amongst the pebbles. The only thing I have to do is wait for a drop of rain, which is forecast for later. If I bunged them up now, they’d just blow off again, as they are incredibly light and dry.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
