Larkspur has this awful habit to slip away from control and lay down when you only put your hands somewhere else in the spring and forget to support them properly. It is not easy to forget it in the time, when we gardeners run around frantic to manage to do as much as possible. March and April here is the time when I forget that garden is my oasis, heaven and eden. Twice I have forgotten to support larkspur and I promised myself either to get rid of the plant or never forget supporting it properly. There is one little problem – I hate plastic in the garden. So far only reasonable and working supports I could buy were plastic.
Last year I discovered great solution. There is a way to combine sustainable practices, keep larskspur in a ‘soldier’ position when you need it and additionally make your garden more beautiful.
Today I picked 3 photos from a huge pile to inspire myself and maybe you also find it inspiring on how to do it using waste cuttings that pile in the garden after late winter and spring pruning.
