Border Preparation

As well as making the basket plant supports, the herbaceous border needs to be prepared for the summer display.

Having been repeatedly trampled on over the last few weeks during the laying of the porous hose and making the plant the supports, a granular fertilizer has been added. We use Growmore, a general purpose, granular fertilizer, which will promote strong, healthy growth and now needs to be forked in.

Ady, Graham, Joe and Kieron have spent the last few days forking it in, removing weeds as they go, treading very carefully to avoid the newly emerging tulips.
