    Planted Rosa "Albrighton" & a Golden Alder..plus a bit of mulching and more cardboard sheet on the veg beds.
  • Didn't plan on doing any gardening today but nipped to Aldi and saw they had Hellebores for £2.99, of course I couldn't resist so I got 2 along with a Gaultheria Mucronata (also £2.99) and planted them when I got home!

    Very muddy underfoot today. Removed more slate from revamping bed, ( only doing it a bit at a time)
    Mulched some beds with manure,  for the worms to see to. ( lots of worms about)
    Put more support on highest of the apples "arms", and repaired the pergola.

    Kind of, I planted a few crocus 'Tommies' next to my Mum's grave and bought a besom brush from Wantage GC. We've got lots of small birch leaves falling on our paving so I'm hoping the besom will do the job better.

    Planted over 500 bulbs this weekend, most of them today as it didn't rain as much as on Saturday, most of which was spent planting those destined for pots.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • I planted an assortiment of Helleborus in pots today. Very pretty during te wintertime.
  • We scattered more Yellow Rattle seeds in the field - hoping the 4 sheep will treat them in as they graze. Counted out the remaining cyclamen plants to go out during the week - hoping my back will allow me to finish the job.
  • A productive morning in the rain - just planted four euonymus to finish the border around my hydrangeas. Our local nursery had lots in for £2 each and now I'm wondering if I should go back for a few more. I've already got six thriving (so far) cuttings in the shed but I'm very conscious that many in nearby roads have suffered with box moth so I suspect that the days of the box border around my roses might be numbered. The lady at the nursery went to Polesden Lacey at the weekend and mentioned that they were pulling out all their box and replacing them with euonymus.

    I'm thinking the same @HidcoteHurrah , but, touch wood, we haven't got box blight yet, although it has reached the other side of Bath apparently. I do like euronymus, such a dependable, easy plant which doesn't need pruning!
    I managed to plant the remaining bulbs, mostly in pots but some crocus 'Tommies' in my Shady bed and Tulipa clusiana in my Rose bed.

    The sun came out briefly and the rain stopped so dashed out and cleared a narrow border of dead iris leaves and cut back the catmints - looks much neater now. Then I handpicked lots of wet birch leaves off my rockery which were swamping the cyclamens, campanula, bergenia and hellebores. A very laborious job.
