Results of my day off..
Most of the grass and weeds from the concrete gone and some large crevices left for some brave alpines or other tough cookies to inhabit when I find some. Just have to keep the other weeds at bay til that happens.. the price of having the patio as I want it is eternal vigilance, I expect.
Hypericum is out of its corner. The root had given up trying to get nourishment and moisture from whatever the dusty stuff was in the pot, and had headed straight down through the small drainage hole so I had to give it a good tug. I dug as deep a hole as I could in the border, beyond a few inches the ground was so hard. Just above that point I noticed several worms curled into balls, they seemed to have decided to “hole up” (pardon the pun) there until it rained. I put some old compost in the hole. Not sure it has much nourishment in it, but its what I’ve got. When I watered it in, I remembered that I hadn’t really pressed the compost down much, but I suppose it will be ok.
I also reduced the white buddleia to a stump with about six leaves left. Oops.
