Old Herbaceous Border

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 12:39

If it's not a huge area Fran, or if you have enough help, could you lift the plants when the weather's suitable and keep them in a temporary  'holding' area? You can then attack the ground elder and any other weeds more easily, tidy up and nourish the border, and then divide and sort your plants before putting  them back.

Matty, my deepest sympathies. Know what you're going through.

We're here for support when you need it. Think you probably know that already.

If anyone's got the radio on - tune into Radio 2 and Jeremy Vine's show. Guess what they're talking about? Perhaps their ears were burning after my earlier rant....

I can send you some crampons and an ice axe Dove

Spring's definitely on the way....

Emerging Pasque flowers:

 and Iceplants :

 and dwarf Iris (I know it says crocus but I was having a senior moment!) :

 and Clematis :

 and some berries on the Gaultheria procumbens ( think you can get ointment for that...) :

 Not long to go now!

That makes me so angry David. I've just had a rant on the Hello thread 

I'll go and take a photo or two now to calm myself down!

Steady on pd. We don't want you having a relapse 

Bl- it's taken a ridiculous amount of time for the politicians to recognise that the people in Somerset are in a lousy situation. I think it's despicable, and at the risk of being controversial, why are we constantly sending aid to other countries (often wealthy enough ones) when people here need it urgently? And of course, the price of everything will go up because farmers' land is devastated, but it will affect poorer people most.  'All in it together' ?  Yeah right.

I'll get off my soapbox now, you'll be glad to hear

Hope it's all going well David. It's a bit of an upheaval at the best of times, but worse when you've had the flooding with it. 

Glad the eyes are fine
