Ashley makes a Leaf Angel for Christmas

The lawnmowers have been put away, the last leaves have been cleared up and we’re chiselling the mud from our safety boots.¬† It’s time to put our brooms,¬†hoes and trowels down and wish our customers a very happy Christmas and a super new year.

Just to sign off, we’d like to offer you our take on a well known Christmas carol:

The Holly & The Ivy (Gardeners Version)

The holly and the ivy
when they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
They both need a good prune

O, the rising of the sun
And the running of the mower
The whizz, whizz, whizz of the strimmer
And the digging in of manure

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
And the ivy grows up anywhere
Just anywhere it can go

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
But when you’ve pruned it, they’re too small
To land with any thud

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn
And that together with Pyracantha
Makes many gardeners scorn

The holly bears a bark
But don’t let it get too thick
As to chop it down will need
Much, much more than a nick

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
They both need a good prune
