I am very bad at staking things in time - every year my garden note book at this time of year says - STAKE!!!!!!!
So as usual, the first days of August have seen me trotting round clumps of plants with string and canes rather than having constructed something artfully tasteful out of hazel in April.
Looking for something to top the canes I suddenly thought of the small coloured glass vials I use for making wreaths and garlands - they fit perfectly on top of the canes and give the whole bed a celebratory feel. They will stop me jabbing my eyes when picking and it solves the problem of where I am going to store 240 small bottles to boot!
