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!

Enjoy your trip, I'm very jealous of Harlow Carr visit!

Just in for a cuppa while I sort heights of plants one last time before planting

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

Major sleep in this morning  OH says its because I'm busy everyday, I guess he's right

Still contemplating my last border to's in the purple and white garden so it's important to get the balance right between the colours which can include pinks and blues (so not that exclusive), but also how much will they be shaded by my growing sambucus. it's a baby at the moment but this will be it's third year. I guess the answer is to plant and see...there's always next year to move stuff

Had to visit B&Q first thing and came home with some lovely salvias

Then it was out in the garden to plant 3 separate iris and one shrub followed by a fair amount of mulching.

Also arrange plants in a bare patch to decide on the planting combos...I may yet change my mind

Gorgeous hot day, no complaints
