lupins as darkness descended
Well it's almost June so it's high time for everything to go in the ground.
Myself and hubby did a phenomenal amount of planting today. Some more trees/shrubs went into the new borders - lilac, Rhododendron, Viburnum, Miscanthus and Acer griseum. Two Cytisus were planted to obscure the sceptic tank pipes. And the whole of last year's Tropical Border was planted up with perennials - some bought, some raised from seed!
Hubby did fabulous work with the shears too - clipping various grass banks. It is a very hard job. And then he came to help me with the planting up of the large border by digging the holes!
I almost finished the planting, leaving only 7-8 plants undone. I will finish tomorrow.
I took no photos though as it was so late when we finished up. Besides, the place looks like a bomb hit it with sods of earth still lying in piles, grass clippings uncollected and piles of stones I took out of the border. But we're getting there.
