It`s a tough job...but it has to be done!
The annual job of emptying all the troughs and planters in readiness for summer planting has begun in earnest. Our small group of volunteers could really do with a helping hand at this time of the year, it`s a true saying that `many hands make light work` so if you have free time any Tuesday morning, you will be most welcome to join us. The plan this year is to empty all the barrier troughs of the small shrubs which are becoming a bit too established, remove the bulbs to dry out, and check the soil is in good condition for replanting. Here are the shrubs from just five of the troughs potted up and ready for us to find a new home for them:
And some of the bulbs drying out in a sunny porch:
And now a bit of `me time` to work on my own garden:
