Anyone done any gardening today?

more saw and shred done. 

I'll split a few more snowdrop clumps this afternoon and dig up the sick looking hellebores

I've got some of those waiting to go out. Haven't grown them for years. I got them through the forum seed swap.

I'd cut all the dead wood out and a few of the old but live ones back to base. If it's healthy it will grow more shoots from the base and you can remove the old ones a few at a time over the next year or two (or 3 or 4)

A light day, splitting some snowdrop clumps to extend the white carpet.  

Muttered at some hellebores that have got something wrong with them. Remove tomorrow I think. They've been there a very long time and in a bad patch of soil.

Another round of saws and shredder tomorrow as well

They're great if you've got the space and mine didn't fall over which tall plants usually do for me

Hedysarum coronarium. no, it's not red clover. That's Trifolium pratense

its common name is French honeysuckle.

Looking for a ground cover plant

Geranium macrorrhizum would be near the top of my list. That's evergreen but thins out a bit in winter so you could have snowdrops as well.

Vinca is a trouble for me as it covers large areas then gets rust and looks awful.

Lamiums are another good one

Trachstemon orientalis is good, not evergreen but good large leaves swamp everything in the weed growing season

I find ajuga has a thin time in summer on my soil
