Back to the Borders

By Danielcarruthers

plants cut back for overwintering and mulched
The fractured knee is healing well and as I get more mobile I’m gradually getting to grips with the borders that have been mouldering over the past 3 months or so. I know the theory is that we should leave everything until spring, but as I have been able to do a gradual tidy I’ve needed to be fairly ruthless in order to sort out the chaos and find spaces to plant the bulbs. As I’ve worked my way along the beds, I’ve edited, divided, planted, top-dressed with compost and GroChar fertiliser www.carbongold.com to help those roots keep growing overwinter and then tucked them all up in a lovely snuggly bed of Strulch my mulch of choice.
