Plants on wheels
It’s that time of year when I’m moving (and removing) shrubs and tough plants to improve the garden. This weekend, I have dug out two established callicarpas that were planted 15 years ago (they are destined for the son of a friend who has taken over a large garden that was entirely planted with conifers which he hates!). The next shrub in the border is a bit tender so it will have to wait until spring to be moved and then some veronicastrums will need to shift to make way for it and so on.
Also, out came an aucuba as the skimmia beside it needs more space – that is going to new neighbours two doors away. Then I discovered creeping buttercup and fox-and-cubs had invaded the border so had to trace all the bits and remove them. One vegetable bed is full of new purchases waiting for their final homes to be freed up which means the veg bed can’t be prepared until they move. I think I need a degree in Logistics to sort this all out! And a hot bath!!
