Weekend work consisted of removing all the forget-me-nots from the top lawn border 6 barrowfulls in all! Sadly we took out a fairly large Camelia as it was slowly dying. There was no visible sap and I think 2 wet winters was more than it could cope with. As it happened, it wasn't in the best of places and surprisingly isn't missed.
In fact this border looks surprisingly full - possibly thanks to Chris's urns which are looking quite colourful. In place of the now deceased Camelia, we planted an assortment of Dahlias in its place several of which are Genever (Prize Winning) Dahlias whose tubers were saved in the tool shed over winter and re-potted this spring. They look extraordinarily vigorous and healthy so fingers crossed for more prize winners!!
