And what sort of soil do you have?

Do you know why the area is permanently wet?

We don't have any open fires here - we offered the timber to next door who have a log burner, but he said he didn't want to have split it and he'd just had a load delivered - so the tree feller is taking it away and knocking £70 off the price.

I'm taking some pics of work in progress - the Tree Man's dad says 'He's always posing so he won't mind'

Apart from anything else, let the birds furtle around and get at any slugs etc that you may have - putting a membrane over the top just give the slugs protection to carry on breeding through the winter - you don't want that to happen

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?
