So I took advantage of having my mother out here to keep Erika entertained and I attacked the overgrown garden and finished off my ‘paving’. Rod dug the trench for the water tank pipes so we are getting somewhere… Slowly, but we are getting somewhere.
I ripped out the Ánthony Parker’ sage in the Fairy garden, it kind of took over and even though it was nice it was annoying me. So they are gone. And while I was there I cut back everything else and gave it a good sprinkle of blood and bone. Cleaned up the *Iris": section which is looking pretty dismal. The ground is terrible and they really need to be moved but I will leave them there one more year and after then I might have a better spot to put them.
Tied back the Plumbago": and it is looking a bit tidier again. Now I just need to get into the back fence garden a bit and work out who is going to stay and who is going to go. That needs extending a bit to the left, so when we get the soil for the spa garden I will do that. But for now I just cut back the ‘Hot Lips’ Salvia": to give the *winter Iris": under it a bit more light.
I paved the bit where the built in bbq was, and cleaned that up. Put back a bit of stone and used some bricks to re edge the side of the under the tree garden. I planted one of the Polemonium seedlings in there as they seem to like it. It all looks much better. And now I have a better spot to put all the pots. Eventually I would like to get rid of all the pots and have it all in the garden, but that has to wait till I have more garden beds ready.
Today I planted the rest of the *Iris chrysographs": (?) in the Fairy garden, along with the double Tiger Lilys I pulled out of the back door garden and the Geranium x mon… (need to go look for the proper spelling and do an entry on this one) which has been in a pot for years. I chucked in a good amount of sheep poo to get them moving along.
Thats about it I think…. I should really make note of what I have done on the night I do it or I forget…
Salvia - Hot Lips Pruning
Salvia - Anthony Parker Under Attack
Under attack by me. I pulled them out. [[Archived]]
