This is my Potting Shed:
Or maybe it’s this:
Or even this:
But definitely not this:
Okay, the scrambling roses are great but this one is way too precious for The Barn’s gardens.
In truth, THIS is my potting shed:
Yes, I know. Now that we’re over the hump in major renovations on The Barn, my radar is turning to this little eyesore. Smack dab in the middle of our big parking area, this poor thing has been sorely neglected for years. When we first moved in, it was hard to even find the door it was so overrun with ivy (both poison and English) and weeds. So it’s been cleaned up a bit but I think a new PROJECT is in order, no?
The shed is bordered on one side with rose bushes -unsightly most of the year – and on the right is a small holly tree which is much too close.
The plan is to remove everything, replant what can and should be salvaged, and start with a clean slate. Speaking of clean slate, this back wall of the potting shed would be gorgeous with an espalier planting of something.
So this is what I will be plotting and scheming over for the next month or so. More to follow another day.
