The garden bed is a tree, roses, pencil pines and stones.
The garden fork only goes in about 3cm.
Also I want the plants in the ground while I am away for better survival. The bed gets good sun and catches any rain.
So I rang my gardener Luke (didn't think I'd need him here) and he and the lads did the work that would have got me to the chiropractor.
|Moved the pots out of the way (the rose bush is planted in a pot Annemarie!)|
|It needed shovels not just the rakes|
|The Pencil pines gone|
|The soil dug over OK and has a lot of worms!|
|I am going to have the stones form a dry garden area|
|The Hydrangea safely in the ground with some stone mulch |
(that's not a weed it's the cyclamen bulb )
