Getting a puppy has changed everything in our lives, including the garden. When we moved in, I removed the lawn and rammed the borders with bee friendly plants and flowers. This year when the chicken run went, it became even more of a jungle and probably the best it has ever looked.It was however, not at all Tilly friendly. Pulling at plants as she doodle dashes to the bottom of the garden to dig up and eat the bark. Not ideal, as it turns out that so many, well actually nearly all plants in my garden were “toxic to dogs”. But Tilly comes first, and so to save my sanity, all dangerous plants have now been removed and replaced with a small lawned area. Some plants are spending the winter in my raised bed until I can decide where to put them.
I am now researching plants that are dog friendly and planning a new look for summer.
