Many thanks Dove and Bob, I've started to dig in the manure and wlll use the micorrhizal fungi (bought from GC yesterday), already had the fish blood and bone so now fully equipped! Hopefully the bed will be ready when the roses arrive - I've ordered from Peter Beales having been given a catalogue by a friend.
Tempted to sit in the sun today, but keen to get things done - the raised bed has a border of lavender and has a Salix Flamingo as a 'centrepiece' and an acer dissectum at one end.. Will the treatment I am working on now have any adverse effect on these? I also need ideas for other evergreen shrubs to ensure all year round interest .........?
Thank you both for your advice
