 Hi guys not in full bloom yet but im concerned as before as the soil is very dense with the sandy substrate and being under slabs for so long, i have added horse muck, but would it be a good idea to add perculite or vermiculite to help brake it up?

Got ya Verdun, ive actually planted two Peonies against some of you fellow gardeners advice as i do think they are amazing, impatiens, snap dragon, petunias, anemones and dug up a large Bergenia and transplanted it their too,ill take pics when in full bloom i hope but the soil is extremely sandy and dense due to being under slabs for a while i hope.!

Just an update, i do believe the infestation is either a rosemary beetle in larvae form or some people reckon a spidermite although i dont think they start as caterpillars! Even so the whole Rosemary has been dieing for ages from the bottom up, so it has had its final resting place in the recycling green waste bin! Ive also found it on my potted thyme, and potted Bay tree, just to let people know!

So no more input? Im thinking of a few Peonies, interspersed with ground cover to negate the cats, also possibly Dicentra/Foxglove/ Anemone's or something similar, this is all along the wall by the way, which is covered from wind, but gets amazing sunlight after midday?
