Left over turfy bits

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

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

Feed it then as well

I love arum lilies but sadly lack the wet conditions this stunner prefers

What's eating my primrose petals??!!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Massive amount of mulching today, only got five and a half bags left, I started with 38

Planted area of part shade border with my Euphorbia purpurea x 3, Polemonium Bressingham Purple and Mexican Orange Blossom White Dazzler

Had to move a fern in the way

That's that border finished, have one small corner in the middle garden plus the area of border in my purple and white garden and apart from pots, raised beds and finishing touches...I'll be done

Thanks Yvie  I do love when I get personal experience feed back, helps a lot more than google!

Gorgeous sunny day, too breezy for T-shirt but its only spring
