The last of the birch plant supports have been constructed on the herbaceous border. The border is now ready for the summer planting to begin, the cuttings taken in September and the annuals sown in March are all now young plants waiting for their place in the summer display. Also waiting, hiding amongst the herbaceous perennials, are the snails! Ali and Sophie spent a few minutes this morning searching for these hungry creatures, placing them in a trug and transporting them to the skip.
