    @Allotment Boy, yes,  we are lucky to have good drainage.

    Ours needs cutting as well but the ground is still too wet.
    I started cutting down my lovely 'Orange Dream' Acer with a heavy heart, right plant, wrong place. It's not possible to dig it out so will have to get OH to saw it off at ground level. I also pruned a large HT rose, a bit more off the apple tree which overhangs the veg bed and the neighbours bushes back to the fence which were shading the raspberries. It was great being out in lovely sunshine for a few hours.

    I was hoping to go today but the rain came before I could get there. It looks like another day indoors, still I can go through the seed catalogues I guess.

    Just been looking at my stored seeds and grouped them into feb and march planting. I don't think I have enough room! Seem to have just as many flowers as veg to get started.🤔
  • Apart from directing the tipper lorry to the place marked out for the load of mushroom compost, nothing else done in the garden. Damp, foggy, drizzle and wind today. Exceptionally mild at 12 degrees.

    Cut the old leaves off some of the hellebores, have to do them a bit at a time.

    Does going to our fave GC & spending lots of money count?
