I would go for herbaceous and evergreen perennials. They grow quickly, can easily be moved and provide colour cheaply. Hemerocallis, phlox, penstemons, etc., and dahlias too for impact this summer. Or, grasses?
look, I've guaranteed good weather today. I've hung out washing and the old adage is that it will be fine. For good luck I always walk under ladders too.
Yes they come in all sorts of weird and wonderful colours Malcolm. I think this has been the best year for wallflowers
Yes, well done Dove
See, patience Lily.
Lily, wait a while yet. Miscanthus is pretty tough and I cant see last winter providing any problems for it. Not in boggy ground is it? My grasses are already 60 cm tall though. Why not carefully pull soil away and see if anything green there?
I would mix just a little of your soil with the compost. It helps the roots "acclimatise" to the soil. not sure of the amount of mycchorrizal you need but the roots of the heathers need to be in immediate contact with it. Especially with heathers I think this is a useful additive.
