Up early today so i can get a good sleep tonight, because of my long shifts at the weekend
It's damp this morning but as Verdun says, the ground is so dry, I can't say Kent has had a single week, weekend or even day of real proper rain. Half a day at most, once this summer
My soil is builder's rubble, light sand and bone dry and I am always amazed how plants still manage to live in it
I tend to plant new things in deepish holes with piles of compost added to improve things, obviously I choose appropriate plants, most of the time, I have three astilbes that struggle through my gallons of watering to keep them going. I didn't know their requirements when i bought them, will probably take them to my parents (in my car) because they have a naturally moist area in their garden that I don't have
Today is garden designing. Trying to refine my choices and get that blend of planting just right.
More coffee first
