I also agree with the tidy up first, sort out what you want and what you do not want to keep, what you dont want take to the tip dont leave lying around,do a bit at a time will not seem such a massive task then, as you know the kids will love to help. Your daughter wants to put bulbs in, well Sept and Oct is a good time to plant bulbs, easy, give your raised border a dig over and just put your bulbs in, next spring you could get some cottage garden seeds, sprinkle over your bed and they pretty much look after themselves, good luck.

I believe you can get the seeds from them and grow them on for the following year, have not done it myself but going to try this year, so fingers crossed.

I have still not received my penstemons from the July issue of Gardeners World, but i know some people have, tried e-mailing them but cannot get through for some reason, hopefully when i get them i will pot on and keep them in my gro-house over winter, but will place fleece on the shelfs to protect any cuttings that i have, hopefully they will arrive soon.
