Well, that was so much fun this morning doing the LIVE video for ‘Start Your Day with Sarah’! Thanks to everyone who joined in. It’s a lovely feeling to connect with you all, as often my day is a solitary one spent working by myself. So it was thoroughly fun, interesting and enjoyable to chat with so many great women first thing in the morning. What a great way to start our day! 💜
In the video - remember, it’s available by clicking my profile icon - I was talking about the beautiful trees I’ve planted here at the property.
I chose a variety that is a classic in any garden, be it in the country or the city ... the lovely ornamental chanticleer pear. 🌳
These trees have settled in very well over the winter, and as this is their first summer - and it's now really, really dry out here, so it’s a tough initiation! - they are managing themselves very well. I spoke about using a unique product at the time of planting that has been a great help in getting the trees established quickly by utilising every drop of rain that they've had over the past six months. And I’m so glad I did this!
Called 'WaterSave Medium" from a company called Polymer Innovations, the tiny white gel crystal absorbs and every drop of water down at the roots, where it can be stored and accessed when needed. I also used it in planting the roses in the display garden, which is why I think they've also had such a great debut season. So just a useful and helpful tip for when you are next planting. Especially when you have invested big $ in trees and plants for your garden, as I most certainly have. It’s critical to give them the best head start.
Have a great day, my friends! I’ll see you again in the morning. We might go down to look at the dahlias and see how they are doing! Xo 🌳🐝💜 #countryliving#countrylife #
