Just back from my mums after having to replace a TV aerial cable which was routed behind fitted wardrobes.. Mum now happy and can watch TV in bed again.
There was just enough light left to lift a really thuggish agapanthus and a mass of montbretia which had intermingled with it - a solid 3ftx3ftx1ft of tangled roots now chopped to bits and stuck in pile to hopefully get frosted and rot - and good riddance to both!
It took the last of my own compost to fill the hole plus two 70l bags of MPC but I planted 30 rather lovely red tulips at the bottom of the hole first and a layer of winter crocus before placing the final layer of compost on, so looking forward to those.
Same again needed tomorrow - I'll be slightly sad to see another agapanthus go but glad when those bloody montbretia are just a dim memory - they are nasty hoodlums in my garden. The agapanthus are ones I grew from seeds from a Headborne hybrid in the front garden so no great loss. I think I'll get some of the more delicate types... and keep them in pots!
