Well what a lot of digging I have done ended up uncovering a large hole with lots of lime bricks in under ground was about 1/2 metre deep thought maybe there was a lime kilm there once - not sure though
took some pics - ended up filling it in only want to plant in top area hope it will be fine for the plants
when I was planting my apple tree right near by the area a year before last I had to dig out loads of lime bricks right where I wanted the tree to be - so must have been something with all those bricks
Planted out a few phlox and hebe from Woody plant sale and a large stipa gigantea which I got from Stansted garden show - so Verdun will need advise for what to do with it in winter/ spring re cutting it or not?
Found a tin of metal paint in the garrage pinched a bit as dad's, but he has had it a long time - painted old bbq so now dark green not rusty will be used for a bird water table/bath
Fidgebones it is all knackering this digging mallarky, me prepared area for plants so that will be more digging yet to do
