Have had a cracking day in the garden with sunshine and temps up to 21C despite a breeze. Have cleared a semi circular bed of all the geranium phaeum and endressii which had thugged it to pieces, rescued a couple of hosta Gold Edger and.potted them up and 5 giant scabiuos babies. Forked over the bed and transplanted a prostrate golden conifer from the damp bed and planted 2 new blue ones and another bronze/gold one along with the chamywotsit that I transplanted there 2 weeks ago? Looks great now and just needs a mulch of chipped bark.
Thence to the bed above the terrace wall which is huge so started at the base and weeded my way up. Lots of bittercress, creeping buttercup, grass, sticky bud, nettles but loads less than last year so I'm winning. Pruned a buddleia and took cuttings and potted up lots of babies from a clump of centaurea which was riddled with nettles. Poted up 6 echinops ritro that had self seeded in the wrong place.
Have to agree with Busy about OHs and weeding. Mine only blitz weeds which means that for a while, till I banned him from my beds, I had the most expensive compost heap in Belgium.
