    Thanks all.

    This soil had been under flagstones for @ 20 years and then under my membrane and gravel for 15 more

    I added the manure to introduce some worms as they were none when I loosened the top 2 inches.

    They have 5 months to do some worming about and as suggested carry on loosening the top soil

    I certainly wouldn't plant tulips in an area that waterlogs. Even the tough ones like the Apeldoorns won't appreciate that for long.

    I think you might have been better leaving a small layer of gravel on there @NewBoy2. Lots of things would germinate in that alone. A layer of sandy grit on top of it, to work in over the winter, would have made a good seed bed for lots of things to get a hold. 
    I still have plenty of the corncockles if you want me to send some in late winter/early spring.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I will take your advice this week and look at grit. I have a helpful local GC that I rely on

    Just back from Conwy North Wales

    Thanks FG
