You could probably put annual summer bedding plants in there, but very doubtful for shrubs.......see what others say.....ther must be soil under the paving, could you get someone to break up the paving for you?

Thanks figrat, chopped up the soil alot , will keep an eye on it.......have got a load of grit, should have checked this out before planting.....could always go back and put some grit down tomorrow.

I have moved my lavender into the garden today, planted it in our clay soil, hope it takes, was looking a bit worse for wear in its pot.....hope it settles, I know clay soil isn't the best, put some compost round it so will see how it goes.

Butterfly watch?

Hi chilli, I saw two butterflies today, not sure if they were red admirals but they had that type of colour. Normally don't see many round here so to see two in one day was quite something.

Hi swed boy, I have been out in our flat gardens today and been pottering around, loved it, some plants had died but one of my primroses was in full boom, last year it didnt do very well so I had to move it. Blue bells are very slow but planted some narcissus that are in flower round one of the trees, even saw a robin watching me, a lovely day.
