Karen arrived before me I am closer but got held up with traffic so Karen got more plants planted in border.

I polintaed the Lord Napier Nectarines as no bees.

Then I split chives and got them all planted .

And we had to prick chard seedlings out and plant in to cell trays Red and Yellow Chard.

I also potted up sunflowers I believe they will get used for cutflowers inth e

in the castle.

When we were finished we went for a walk to see the Princess Margarets Magnolia memorial and its full of buds when it blooms I shall share a photo.

Then walked on to the Italian Garden as they are getting new status and they are impressive.

It was dry and sunny but cold.

Sorry you had snow Garden Girl.
