Its Done


By csarina


This morning I set to and planted 40 plants in the new border, I have also placed more to go in later.

Daffodil bulbs will go in late next month or early Otober when I do the containers for the front.

OH will put in some stepping stones so I do not have to stand on the soil.

We know there were garages on the site before the houses were built, I think they must have broken up the concrete bases and then put top soil onto them the number of bits of concrete I have dug up. The soil is heavy clay, we need some farmyard manure. Its as well I did the job today, had it been dry it would have been impossible to dig the holes out for the plants.

You are making good progress with your planting. It will look great next year.

You have a great mix of different colours and shapes of foliage there. Time to sit down for a little rest now!
