Cleared the dead stuff from the big border, but couldn't weed as clayey soil was still too wet. Started middle border instead, but that was quite heavy too. That one had lots of compost and manure dug in about 3 years ago when I dug out the conifer to make the end bit.

Thanks Chicky, that's lovely. I love the perfect tiny buds, like mini HT roses, when they start coming out.

Have been clearing the big border. It was a big, long version of this one. This one (in photo) will be done last as it was so wet. Ground squelched all around. I left the dead growth for protection and wildlife, but it's such a lot of work in the spring I think I'm having 2nd thoughts. But then last autumn and winter were so wet I wouldn't have got the chance.

It's a mess.

Good luck with the pond Dove.

Good morning all. Another lovely day. Shall attack the big herbaceous border, which still has all the dead stuff I left over winter for the wildlife.

Dove, you can't have read back, Countryfile had a nasty bit about abattoirs or something. I only saw the 2nd half so missed it.

Good morning Marion. I hope you have a happy gardening day in the sunshine.

I'm still reading although I haven't said anything for a few days. This is your special thread.

pergola - wisteria or clematis?

Lead Farmer posted a photo of his clematis Dr. Ruppel on his arch. Looked fabulous. I had to buy one!

My favourite TV night tonight so have been absent. Had fish and chips, best batter I've ever made, used lager, but I think batter and chips is more than I can manage. No pud, felt bloated ever since.

Three arches like that will make a great pergola.

I mowed fenced flower garden and OH mowed the rest of the grass. Looks so much better. But the grass has died under the copper beech. It didn't lose it's leaves until the rains started so was late clearing them. Do you think bluebells would grow there? They grow in beech woods don't they?

If it is Canadian Fleabane, which I fear it may be, it will have thousands of little white flowers that will turn into fluff and float their seeds all over your garden. Luckily it's not hard to pull up.
