I did that border sort out. Soil lovely & moist, so replanted deeper a couple of small Heucheras that had just started to lift themselves up.
Got 99% of the moss off. Had to leave some round the stems of a still, even now, flowering penstemon- that'll get sorted when I cut it back next spring, note made to do. Easy to fork over the cleared soil & then 2 large compost bags full of my compost were spread over. All being well, next yr shall be quicker at removing the unwanted self-seeders that'll pop up.
This morning minus 4.5C out our back first light! Only -3C at the front.
Now brilliant sunshine, yes the moon was good last night & lots of activity around the bird feeders. It's still below freezing now & if the heating engineer leaves the front door open again I shall not be responsible for my actions! J.
