1/9 - This is one of the biggest contradictions I’ve seen. @The_RHS, THE MOST INFLUENTIAL #gardening charity in the UK, whilst promoting Plants For Pollinators, are still endorsing “WEED”KILLERS! 😡 “Inspiring everyone to grow” (except the wildflowers) Don’t believe me?👇🧵
2/9 - Whilst not actively selling this product on their own website, it’s available via @jennychem_. What sickens me more is the detail in which various weed killers are described to eradicate different “weed” species, INCLUDING my favourite #wildflower Bird’s-foot trefoil! 😡
3/9 - Take Bird’s foot trefoil for example. It’s a larval food plant of the Common Blue, Green Hairstreak & Dingy Skipper butterflies and also Six-spot burnet moth. It also provides nectar for many bees and other insects, along with ALL the other plants listed in the next tweet.

A boring thread about how I got my garden beds ready for planting. Last year was my first year #gardening. I just built natural earthen beds. I didn't know much about amending soil etc. & the garden had been dormant for about 15 years. Here's how it looked prepped last spring.
Despite being a novice there were some real successes. Like 45kg of spuds, 15kg of onions - which we still use! Peas, tomatoes, beans were all winners. Carrots, parsnips and cabbage, not so much. Still, I learned a lot. #gardening
I built a nice 3 bed composter from pallets and scrap wood to start building up our own supply of compost for this year's beds.

गुना (मध्य प्रदेश) के रुठिआई गांव के 44 वर्षीय केदार सैनी एक गरीब किसान परिवार से आते हैं। लेकिन पर्यावरण के प्रति उनका जो लगाव है, वह उन्हें काफी खास बना देता है। वह पेड़-पौधों और देसी बीज के विषय में बेहद अच्छी जानकारी रखते हैं और
(2/5)इसका इस्तेमाल करके वह शहर में हरियाली भी फैला रहे हैं। साल 2019 से वह गेल इंडिया और प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना जैसे प्रोजेक्ट्स पर पौधे लगाने का काम कर रहे हैं।

अपने पौधों के प्रति लगाव के कारण ही वह दुर्लभ सब्जियों, फलों और जड़ी-बूटियों आदि के बीज इकट्ठा

@GWmag @TheMontyDon @Telegraph No surprises that ‘attack’ featured heavily from then on, such is the venom that’s on tap from our #gardening & #horticulture industries. And then came wild, chest-thumping talk (yawn) of ‘boycotts’ of @GWmag 👇So we won’t engage with what @TheMontyDon says, we’ll ‘fight back'
@GWmag @TheMontyDon @Telegraph and show him who’s boss (even if we know we’re doing the wrong thing by mining peat, destroying habitat & adding to #climatechaos, because profit comes before everything else). One of the few media outlets that treated the story with honesty was @Independent w/ this headline
@GWmag @TheMontyDon @Telegraph @Independent That was a bit more like it. No invective toward @TheMontyDon, pinpointing of industry/gov failure to end peat use & mention of how using peat is adding to our #ClimateCrisis. What’s not to like? @thetimes’s stab at covering the ‘story’ couldn’t resist an invidious touch:

This is a thread about the toxicity that permeates the UK #gardening & #horticulture industries. In the current issue of @GWmag @TheMontyDon pointed out that retailers are ‘actively choosing to do harm’ if they sell peat, peat-based compost or plants grown in peat. He was stating
@GWmag @TheMontyDon the obvious. It’s a scientific fact that peat bogs release their stored carbon when they are drained & mined. FACT. More carbon means more #climatechaos. Carbon set free by its use in #gardening doesn’t hide away. It’s all driving our #ClimateEmergency. @TheMontyDon was saying
@GWmag @TheMontyDon in plain terms, that if your an industry that’s still digging up peat and releasing carbon, and adding to #ClimateBreakdown, then you’re part of the problem we all share. Let’s not forget that no gardener needs peat to succeed & that modern & reliable #peatfree mixes exist, and

Amongst the many little pleasures of life that are so underrated , #gardening tops my list .

It is astounding as to why I never tried my hand at it prior to 2019 despite being a #nature lover !
Oh! The joy it brings is unfathomable mostly! :))

1/ Beetroot leaves & yellow flowers.

This captures the messiness of our garden. We have good intentions with the planting of veg and bulbs, but then it becomes haphazard. There is not a lot of weeding as we love seeing what flowers appear from 'weeds'!

#LifeAfterChildlessness Image
2/ We have both got closer to nature and that feels part of our healing and plan b. Nature and being outdoors would had played a big part in our children's lives, well we would had least offered them the opportunities.

#ChildlessNotByChoice #InvisibleGrief
3/ Now we are living a life without children it feels we are very much offering a home to nature by being messy in our garden. Accepting the wildness of our life unexpected.

1/3 As promised, the first in a series of nature photos & any associated thoughts on being childless not by choice

#NatureConnection Image
2/3 Allium. I planted a load of bulbs last October/November time and we were really surprised when these popped up in the garden as I had forgotten what bulbs I had planted! I just wanted to add colour to our garden for us and pollen for insects.
3/3 I do feel I have developed a deeper relationship with nature due to being childless, as it is a chance to nurture, to care, to help. It also feels healing.

What do you do to help with the loss?
