Well I ventured into the garden after a couple of hours homework, it started raining, the soft kind that doesn't wet the soil but only the path and idiot humans who are willing to get wet for the sake of a to-do list.
So, I've finished clipping my box balls, hopefully it's the correct method to remove from the top to promote growth from the sides. There are so many YouTube videos about clipping but scant info on how to turn a blob into a ball
After that I finally planted my gorgeous red clematis Rebecca. She's so divine I have to have her near a path lest she become average. Perish the thought!
Then I thought about getting my choisya into the ground so started carefully digging a hole between my potted iris and my row of alliums where my clematis Dr.Ruppel used to be and what do you suppose I found?
I can't believe a clump of stems were buried so deep and trying to shoot! It took me ages to dig it out it was so deep and in the end I had to get a crowbar in the hole to lever the thick clump of stems out. It's potted up in intensive care now, and I'm indoors just because my garden coat was soaking by then
Looks like rain all day here, tickling the dry soil
