Mulch & Tree Removal

I did great stuff today - even if I say so myself!

I sprinkled chicken pellets all over the long border and got hubby to water them in while I finished planting the hedge. Then I started mulching the border. I got almost half way. It will be great to not have to worry about weeds now!

Then hubby did two jobs which have been on the long finger for too long. He removed a Mulberry bush that was not doing well for many years. It's leader got broken at some stage and it has never produced fruit.

He also removed the Nectarine Tree from the West Garden (sorry, Jacinta). This tatty tree was hard to get out so it's lucky it was done now. Now what to plant here?

In all fairness, Rachel, you probably did the right thing. If it wasnt doing well, it wont earn its keep.

You really had a good day hedge planted and border nearly sorted and unproductive plants removed now the fun of new plants to be picked.
