DyersE, you have my sympathy. Normally I love assembling stuff, but only when the parts actually work

That really would be the best solution; move all that plant material, hire or buy a shredder, put it on your compost heap and have a sunken rock garden; really far more interesting and a sun trap for some plants and others will like the shade on the other side. ..and a place to hide from the world when you want to

Oh poor BM, the way to do a job you are not keen on is to FOCUS totally on it, then your brain has no room to be bored or to start complaining about it. If you DO feel bored, then you know you are not focusing enough Sounds harsh, but it is true. I could garden till the cows come home but I find most housework a bit tedious, so I force myself to do it with full concentration, and then the job gets done well and I feel saintly for having done it.

 

What's the star in your garden right now

BM, I would keep spare plants in plastic pots standing in gravel trays (the ones without holes that you put under seed trays which do have drainage holes) with 2cm of water (I'm guessing you are a busy mother and don't have time to water each day) and then when you need to fill a gap in the border, bury them half way down in the soil so they don't get too hot. I am not thinking HUGE pots, smallish plants in 12 to 15 cm pots. If all goes ok, and things are not too crowded then you could dig a little deeper and plant the thing
