Thanks to Fleurette

I know the Kris Kringle is suppose to be a secret but a little bird told me I had Fleurette to thank for the extraordinary trowel and weeder that came my way at Johnstown! The weeder is impressive getting much closer to the end of the roots of long-established dandelions and thistles.

Today i had great use for the really looooong trowel! I had a visit from a friend who is always happy to get "bits" from the garden. As we strolled around we encountered a few ground-cover plants that would suit her garden, so I went and got the new tools. Some well-rooted plants of an Arrowpoint Ivy, some Ajuga Repans as well as that pretty Lamium Beacon Silver as well as the less civilised  Lamium Galeobdolon were all easily uprooted for her. It was really childs play with the new trowel!

So a HUGE thank you to Fleurette for the best tools I've had in years!

And thank you to Olive, my lovely visitor who did a great job cutting back the Tropical Border for me!!!!

Enjoy the tools, Hazel.

So glad you are finding the tools useful.  They can also be deemed a conversation piece! I haven’t managed to try out my own yet.  For three full months now it has been impossible to get any worthwhile gardening done.  Most depressing to see the ground so saturated.

I hope you have recovered from your fall, Margot - you were so good to make the effort to come to Johnstown when you were obviously in such pain!
