Well yesterday, me and hubby were out the back, digging out the foundations fora new raised bed. He thought it wise to dig down about 4ft (?!?!?!??!), as the soil is pretty much all clay. So out came what felt like 6 tonnes of the stuff, most of which have been spread over the bottom bed, some of which has been kept back to mix with horse poo, grit and sand.
So, the bottom bed has a gorgeous Camellia growing in it, and not much else. I sowed a number of biennials end July/beginning August, that I thought would work well there. The border itself gets sunshine from the time the sun comes up until around 1 or 2pm. The seedlings are foxgloves, wall flowers, forget-me-nots and sweet rocket mostly 3 inches tall, growing in their own little pots. Should I plant them out as soon as poss (I heard wallflowers don't much like the cold, will they need protection?).
I was going to scatter love-in-a-mist, annual poppy and cornflowers in October
