The best part of the day was spent planning what needs doing in specific areas. It is becoming apparent that the more I have planned the easier it is to direct people when they come to help. A large part of the the day was also spent cutting down a tree that had been uprooted near a path.  It’s been limped up and is ready to be chopped for fire wood.

I have planted out some boggy ground cover plants where a new bog pond has been created in the lower area of Jimi’s walk to encourage drainage which should help some of the rhododendrons that have been struggling from having their root balls in very wet ground.

Both Cat and myself trimmed the tree at the bottom of the house lawn and removed the dead wood  to open up the bottom bed to be able to start removing the mess in there in preparation for adding a thick layer of seaweed and mulch so that this bed can be planted out in the spring and provide the new plants with healthy soil.
