It was a glorious afternoon and I was able to sit down and remove the forked over grass with absurd ease.
This sort of gardening is almost fun. And then I had to make use of this perfectly prepared bed.
I haven’t planned any lavender hunting trips this week. I think I need 18 plants here. Two rows.
But autumn is never the best time to buy these cheap as can be Mediterranean shrubs.
But one thing I can with this blank canvas right now is to plant bulbs. I have popped in 300 of the little drumstick alliiums from my stock.
Easy peasy as they are so tiny.
I had 100 more left to put on the other side of the fence just for a spot of aesthetic balance.
I have planted bulbs in between the lavenders for a few years now, but topping up never hurts. My back does. But that’s also gardening.
