So sorry hear your news Stacey, keep fighting and you'll get through it and be gardening in the spring. We are all behind you.
Good to have you back KEF. Did you have a lovely time?
It rained quite a bit in the night but the garden was very dry, so that's good.
Yesterday I started doing something I've been meaning to do for 2 years, but we didn't have any gravel. Now that we've been to get some with OH's little trailer I've been able to start sorting around his shed. I am making a neat (I hope) narrow gravel border around it so he can mow up to it neatly. I removed half a barrow of soil, put down a fabric membrane and then the gravel, mixed with anti-cat granules (probably won't work).
The earth I mixed with compost and rotted manure and planted my Rosa Complicata from David Austin that I bought in June in a large pot. No room in the borders. Impulse buy!
