Bay tree root eradication

I'd go with the stump grinder, lot of digging otherwise. Might have to top up the soil when that lot's gone. 

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

I should think the dahlias will germinate Red, might not be quite as the parent plant. Might be better.

There's nothing you can take for gardening addiction, you just have to live with it.

Hi Jess

You'll need to cultivate the soil every year if you want to maintain this as an annual meadow. If you don't, grasses and perennial weeds will move in. It's like the old cornfields, cultivated in autumn or spring and the annuals grew with the crop. Then some idiot invented weed killers.

Cyclamen won't cope with that and belong in deciduous shade anyway, have you got a tree they could go under?

Sternbergias like to be baked in summer (or so I'm told, they rarely flower for me whatever I do) you could put some at the edge of the meadow on the sunny side.

The draw back of both sternbergias and autumn crocuses is the great mound of leaves growing right now just when you want your annuals to be taking off.

I think an annual meadow is lovely and doesn't need extras.
