Still awake here  Late shift taxi duty

That looks like quite a fruit patch Liri .  I think the idea of removing every other bush makes sense.  I have trouble harvesting from the centre of our raspberry patch and its only 3foot wide, so a picking path sounds like a good idea too - although it might be a full time job to keep it clear.

Does it get used much?  Can you ask people what would make it better for them?

Good to have you back   Hope you and OH are both feeling much better now.

Mission accomplished - daffs and alliums planted in the meadow.  How are you doing Clari ?

Very glad to have my long handled bulb planter - although it used to be easier with a small child following me round popping the bulbs in the holes I had just made.  Seems to be a lack of (co-operative) small children round here these days  Maybe I should nip into town and borrow someone elses.....they might be glad of the respite

I grow Comtesse de Bouchard in a big pot growing up an obelisk - she does well for me too (Surrey).  Haven't come across any of the others though.

Foxgloves indoors or out over winter?

Was going to plant mine out in the garden this weekend (grown from plugs this Spring) - wasn't sure it was the right thing to do, but now I am reassured
