My fruit bushes have been am’bushed’ by stray raspberries and weeds for the past year, but today I decided enough was enough. I had been leaving them well alone to settle into their new home since moving them from my old allotment, they had a bit of a shock at the time and didn’t have a great year last year. This spring, they have come back with a new lease of life (thank goodness!), so I needed to get weeding before it all got out of hand.
I’m excited to see if we get a good crop of fruit this year, I’ve already spotted some currants forming 🙂
