Papi Jo, I can't name or number my photos as this site won't let me. Whatever I do the photos are always above all the script and in reverse order to the order I post them.
We have been in England for over two weeks and the garden had grown a lot by the time we got back.
We stayed with friends in Malvern last week and we went to the Malvern Spring Festival. We also went for a walk in the Malvern Hills. Wonderful views.
Are they paving stones for a patio area? If so they will need some sort of stony or rubbly foundation to give them a more solid base than just earth. Or could they be for a path like stepping stones across a lawn? They will just need grass dug out so they are level with the grass for mowing over.
They are quite common here in France. Recently I read an article which said they are being seen more often now in England.
I have green capillary matting from Wilko which is in my propagators. If yours is the same then it's green side up with the seed trays on top.
I don't think you would need to dig that deep. My garden is on limestone and part of it was a farmyard. We added earth and manure but it isn't as deep as that and I grow a lot of perennials. Bits of it have rock about a foot down. My big dicentra is in a clay bit.
Thank you for sharing that, I don't know that variety.
I hope so GD, now that it's been watered I would like to get on with weeding and planting.
Tipping with rain, 11° in Dordogne. 29° yesterday!
Matty (ex-poster) had a super DD clem. Fingers crossed.
Absolutely tipping with rain in Dordogne, garden really needed it.
