A New Lakeside Border For Iris sibirica 'Flight Of The Butterflies'
Ali and Graham spent the day working by the lake creating a new border. Being very careful not to fall in, they striped the turf from the area to reveal the compacted soil.
Once all the turf had been removed they then spent the afternoon forking it through, breaking up the soil in to smaller clods then breaking them down to a fine tilth. Leaf mould will be added tomorrow, forking it in and dressing the surface. Iris sibirica 'Flight Of The Butterflies' will then be planted in the new border, an excellent waterside plant with violet blue, white veined flowers.
