No doubt will start with secateurs and end up with a saw! Does anyone else have that problem?
Spring is definitely arriving here in the South East. Even if we get cold weather back, the days are noticeable longer, the birds are perking up and buds are popping.
My soil is sandy, so I can dig with ease any time of year but need to feed and mulch like its going out of fashion.
Jobs today included dividing a large fern, moving the last bare root rose in the wrong place and oh yes...I found my missing Tulips in another bed. I had totally forgotten where I planted them, luckily, its pretty established and not one I usually end up treading all over in ignorance. Lets hope they look okay.
Tomorrow's jobs include taking delivery of some replacement fencing, the last of the heavy pruning...with a saw and I still need to design two beds that were a bit of a rush job last year because I have all these potted plants that need proper homes and end up saying, "oh that'll do there". Making more work in the following seasons when I decide I hate it.
So, this year's philosophy is to not stress over gaps in the borders but feel excited about eventually finding the perfect plant, how ever long it takes.
