It'll be sunnier than the other beds, so some grasses and perennials that like more sun than the ones I can grow in the rest of the garden, are the plan Verdun - mainly southwest facing and with shelter from the remaining ash tree which is in the SE corner of the garden.

The first tree man arrived at 7.30!!!  A mug of coffee has been provided and he's getting set up with the shredder etc.    Bless him, he remembered that I'd said there was a hedgehog in the garden and he's checked that it wasn't anywhere near the tree

I agree with Hosta and Verdun - get them in the ground - that's the best place for them - they'll be fine.

Which roses are they?

Good morning all  G'day Pat if you're around

I'm up, showered and dressed 'cos the Tree Men Cometh around 8am - well that's the time they said - will it be light?

GWRS - hedgehogs will be hibernating any time now - their routines are changing, they're not visiting as regularly and I think that as soon as the temperature drops this weekend they'll be snuggled down in leafpiles, hedge bottoms and hoggie houses

Just for you and OH Hosta - to a wonderful holiday

The tree man cometh tomorrow morning!  It'll be a huge change in the garden ...
