Everything springing up
Further to my last post - while clearing the herbaceous beds it has become very clear how fast things are now developing.
When using a spade / fork we have to be very careful not to damage new emerging growth of the things we do want to keep. It also makes planting the spaces tricky as you sometimes don't have anywhere to put your feet! in this case we have just planted some Eremus rootstock - marked by the canes and gravel. Proper labels will soon be going in to try to warn off anyone using a spade / fork in future!
