Planted up My Border ready for Summer
So tonight, on the advice from you guys, I dug in 3 big bags of organic farmyard manure into my border. When I watered my plants in, you could see the difference in the way the soil held the water. Very pleased at the difference.
I also planted up the border with summer flowering perennials, Lupins, Hollyhocks, Verbascum, Lavatera and Hostas (need to get some slug pellets now). By the time I had finished it was too dark to take photos, so will try tomorrow.
So here’s looking forward to a cracking summer display.
Oh and I have had to move my new Acer Palmatum as some of the leaves seemed to be showing signs of windburn, so I haved moved under the cover of some bamboo which hopefully will be a touch more sheltered.
