We are going to be eating late. I forgot the time, was filthy, needed a bath,so its in the oven now.

Lots of planting done today, four large dahlias that were in large buckets and 3 foot tall just had to go in. Big holes dug, through the clay and down to the shale!!!!

Lots of FYM added and what weed roots I could get out of the claggy bit are out.

Weather has been sunny here all afternoon, as opposed to the forecast which was dire. We cancelled a BBQ that we could have had.

Is anyone interested in a trip to Barnsdale gardens near Rutland water on Thursday 19th June?( provisional date)

The nursery there has a large variety of  hemerocallis (day lilies).

Of course there are Geoff Hamiltons gardens that he did for gardeners world.

For directions etc.
