Despite drizzle and grey skies – and the resulting clagginess of the clay soil – I have still been at work in the garden. Several more crops have been started or moved on.
I have also broken up a good chunk of the concrete path that ran up the centre of the garden. We have a couple of alternative paths in (albeit only covered in turf at the moment) and removing the straight path in the middle will be a big step forward in making the garden seem less square.
There is a lot more work to do but it won’t be long now before I can get the Cornus plants I picked up in a recent sale into the position I have planned for them (right where the path was – a visual, living barrier will quickly disguise the alteration).
Cornus alba var. sibirica
Cornus sericea ssp. stolonifera
