Garden Stories – “Easy Time”

A wise book says, “there is a time to sow and a time to reap”. But sometimes we think we don’t have enough time at the right time!

Take for instance a large pruning job that you need to do. Perhaps a hedge. In times gone past it would have taken all day.  But the weird thing is that once we use the cycles of the Moon and do things in sync with nature then they happen so easy! On a Moon day perfect for pruning the clippers cut easily and neatly, and the branches seem to melt off the hedge. They pile up so neatly that picking them up and putting the rubbish in the green waste bin happens in just a moment.  A day’s job happens in an hour. Try it and see.

– enjoy your garden!
