Oh Punkdoc ((hugs)) to you and yours! If you feel like moaning about your roof go ahead, you're allowed to get it off your chest
I've been out and pruned roses and am clearing up the Shady Bank, cutting back the herbaceous perennials etc. I've found lots of green shoots, iris reticulata and sibirica, prunella, Verbena Bon. clemats and honeysuckle, and the delphiniums are peeking up and someone's had a nibble! A big dollop of sharp sand has been put around them and I shall go out with the torch this evening!!!
I'm also trying to decide whether to move one of the gooseberries - the autumn raspberries are creeping quite close to it! It's do it now time, or wait until next year. I would do it now but not sure where to put it The veg/fruit patch is getting a bit cramped now that OH is growing a few things himself
Does anyone want any baby cyclamen hederifolium alba? I've got hundreds of babies coming up all over the place.
And can anyone remember what I planted in one of the big terracotta bowls - some bulbs with pink shoots are coming up - they don't look quite like hyacinths but they might be - I shall have to wait and see.
Oh, and the Fritillaria Imperialis are up and raring to go - they grew but didn't flower last year, so remembering that the ones in a garden I inherited years ago were planted very shallow I replanted these with their noses just below the soil surface - let's see if that makes any difference.
