Don't Forget The Echinacea

With the recent spell of hot weather the tulips on the border are further advanced than usually seen at this time of year, creating a bit of a problem. The staking of the plants needed to be done, the team having to tip toe through the tulips very carefully.

Using coppiced Silver Birch to create the plant supports, and getting competitive with their creations, the team finally finished weaving their supports this morning after starting on Monday.

Having not forgotten to stake the Echinacea this year, preventing it from flopping all over the grass, the border was also fed with a granular feed, weeded and edged.
