Day 90: company while gardening

Daily details from the garden to bring you inspiration throughout the year


Do you prefer to garden in solitude, or in company? And, if the latter, does that company have a physical presence (human, canine...surely not piscine?), or a less corporeal form? I thrive on the quiet space that gardening can create, but often when I need to still my thoughts I’ll turn to an audio book or the radio – occasionally music. Wired headphones are hopelessly cumbersome in the garden, so I tend to rely on Bluetooth speakers or earbuds and hope for decent 4G to get an iPlayer connection. But the most foolproof solution is still my little radio, muddied and scratched, mumbling up at me from the flowerbed.
