Despite it being rather chilly I’ve spent two mornings plotting. Yesterday I tidied and weeded in and around both clumps of crocosmia which was okay until I did the ones down at the bottom, south-west corner where it’s really soggy and the ground was like cold blancmange!
I also did my once yearly tidy up around and on the log pile, mostly cutting back or pulling up the rosebay willowherb stems that grow through the logs. This year I shall probably grow nasturtiums around most of this area.
Today I hoed and weeded all round so that now I’m waiting for drier, sunnier and warmer weather so that I can start planting and sowing. That won’t be for week or more as the forecast is for heavy rain, and some sleet, tonight and tomorrow night. There will also be a brisk easterly wind making it feel around zero through to at least Monday.
Have a good weekend!
