My neighbour told me there's some mean ol' weather on the way so a pity I couldn't have done more today.
A plant order I made hasn't arrived and neither has my most exciting bulb order. Both involve the digging up of 15 other things and some rearranging but I just can't get on without them
Had a rummage through the boring bulbs box, planted some alliums and camassias which seemed the least tiresome to bury. Put some of the camassias near the dogwoods - now that'll be a test of how much clag they can stand
Collected some seedheads and returned the fallout caterpillars back to the plants.
Moved a Hosta to a west facing position, hope it'll be alright there. Had a hell of a job digging it up, never moved one before but it turned out to be my neighbours conifer roots complicating the issue.
Ripped all/most of the mint out the pond, now got a big trug of mint roots and pond gunk I have to go through picking the creatures out. Pond looks a million times better now I can see it. Might reward myself with another flowering rush and a white marsh marigold
