Talking of Astilbes...mine was divided last year and replanted in dappled shade with a shed load of meaty compost and growing marvellously this year as a clump of three, but no flowers yet...
Also, dug up the rest of my second early spuds. Forked a few that I will have for tea tonight, but not a bad crop given that my soil is really undernorished. It's very thin and was eaay to move by the trug load to my new raised bed, but I'm only half emptying the old veg bed, since it still has onions and carrots in it, and only half filling the new bed, since I need to add lots of organic matter as well.
Once the onions have finished, I will landscape the veg plot for more raised beds and better design, plus room for greenhouse w00p w00p. Then, and only then, I think I can join the grown-up gardener's club and get seriously early seed sowing next spring.
