Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 23/04/2015 at 17:20

Glorious day here in Kent, its been brilliant sun shine all day with light breeze, perfect weather to get things done:

  • Slightly rearranged shade bed in purple and white garden to balance colours
  • Propagated Salvia (a white one) making 5 new plants from divisions
  • Planted second of my Echinops with two more to plant (making a rhythm of three plus one in raised bed in the passageway)
  • Repaired retaining wall so the soil don't leak out by step
  • Relayed step (it needs OH to level it properly )
  • Potted up one of my two iris for sunny side of pergola
  • Finished off under pergola with border edging and mulching
  • Filled buckets and buckets of stones from my near ton bag to fill bare patches
  • Did a lot of tidying, removing empty bags of compost, grit and bark, stacks of plant pots and all that scruff I leave about
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my day

The reason it looks like a lot more soil panda is the air you dug into it, will settle again soon

My stacks went on bare soil just out of full sun and left for a whole year

Don't bin it Panda

OMG,  I stacked my leftover turf last year face to face in a shady corner and this year I have gorgeous loam! 

It really does turn into great soil

Feed them in spring and water in dry spells as well

Cut it back as soon as flowering is over to give it the most time to recover 

Feed it then as well
