It's the sort of thing I would do...........

Bare roots perennials - can I put them straight in the border?

No, never plant out bare roots if small...and they usually are these days.....straight into the garden.  Potted up they will grow faster and do better.   after a few weeks they will romp in warmer soil.  No brainier for me.

Dave, I was more concerned about the drainage.......water may lodge or run into that concrete ledge. It could be great or not so good.  And they are unlikely to survive as long as mine.....I.e. At least 10 years.

You will need 60 cm I reckon but how deep is your soil there?  Can you make a raised bed there?  Maybe a row of blocks or sleepers to raise soil level?

Delightful day....pretty warm.  

got roped into helping my neighbour with his fence and a caller stayed a long time so my planned work in garden hasnt yet happened.  

Had lunch but donuts are calling me..........especially those cream and jam ones.  My local shop supplies extra large ones but it would be piggish of me to eat two of those .....surely? 

It's my birthday
