Wild and freezing winds, sodden ground but at least sunshine! Trigs around the lawn were full of water and the top lawn was positively marshy!
Before garden work began we logged up an unwanted apple tree (courtesy of Chris) and lugged and stacked the logs for seasoning. Under Chris's watchful eye, I was allowed a mini chain sawing session! The wind was so strong, there was sawdust EVERYWHERE! Afterwards, we trimmed a Eucalyptus and then tidied the Verbena Bonariensis in the Top Lawn Border, removed a diseased Viburnum (badly affeced by Viburnum beetle) and lightly pruned a couple of Acers. I pruned a couple of Clematis and Chris planted 2 Laurels either side of Kay's arbor. The idea is to make it more secretive and half hidden in a big Laurel arch.
After that, Chris made a start on emptying the compost heap and mulching the Lower Border whilst I potted up a Crinum, some Dahlias and some Heuchera cuttings.
Now, will some one please tell me why a freshly mulched border looks so immaculate?!
