5 hours here too but spent emptying a 2 x 4 metre bed of almost all its plants and setting them aside for division and replanting later on. pruned back 3 clems and 3 roses and dug another one up and put it in a pot where I can nurture it cos it was struggling.
Weeded and edged another small bed and filled with aquilegias and baby hellebores from the cleared bed. Cleared half a nearby semi circular bed of excess geranium phaeum then dug up a 5' conifer from the damp bed by the terrace and hauled it ona tarpaulin to the semi circular which is going to become a conifer bed and will end the constant refereeing garaniums and hostas all the time. When they show their noses, the hostas will come out and be divided and replanted in new homes in my garden and with friends.
Fed the roses and clems and fed, watered and mulched 6 more clems. Off for a well earned shower now and then line dancing after dinner.
Might need a gentle day tomorrow.
