Hello all

Had a busy day clearing as many weeds from station garden (weed-a-thon) and cutting grass down in top area of garden with long armed sheers they are a muscle building tool, the compost bin is now overflowing 

So much of the garden cleared and lots of space for the new plants we brought to be planted. Some bits cut done and put into the garden waste bin - the garden looks so different now to what it did at the begin of the day

Fairygirl like your pics

DD you go for it tackle the garden tame it make it yours


Quote from Woody

Here is progress to date. Had to dig out a thick mat of viburnum roots, but glad I did. Best for the long term. Added MPC with JI to beef up the soil and tried to position the stumps to make it seem they are still growing out of the ground. Now for the grasses.

Well done Woody it looks great

Today been on a trip out to Sussex to Bignor roman villa as free for the weekend, looking around at all the mosaic tiles, had some nice cake

Then noticed a flower show on today in Bury on way home so went had a look around took some pics lots of entries and the judges left comments on all entries so nice and helpful they had plants for sale so got some sweet Williams and pansy's and some allium bulbs
