We moved here in November 2008 and knew we'd have our work cut out getting anything to grow in the garden. The house had been empty for some months, the surrounding grass left untended and nothing had been cultivated for years, by the looks of things.
That was then, this is now. Having been served notice, supposedly on accounts of our chickens causing a nuisance (still dumbfounded by this reason) we now have less than 2 months remaining to return the place to its former 'glory'. We did offer to leave the garden as it was, complete with shed, greenhouse and patio, but the landlord insists we remove everything, including the new multifuel stove we had installed late last year.
