The time had come.
Loppers, secateurs and garden saw...
The start of the long bank dead shrub clearance.
Three hebes and a senecio down.
And a lot of cleared space.
A nicer day today - procrastinating over the fate of the mahonias and photinia.
Gentle weeding of the long bank extension, potted up a few self seeded heucheras and relocated a lot of baby foxgloves up to the high bank. Still got a load more for when I am ready.
I am back on to pea watch. Two weeks on from the first sowing (old seed) and only about a third of them have come up. But the mangetout (new seed) sown the following day are almost all up and thriving. So a trial now - I have sown all the peas that I saved from my own crop last year. And I have extended the trial to the runner beans and dwarf beans - pots sown with both old beans and my own saved ones. Oh the excitement of it all :)
The trials and tribulations of a life of leisure...
