Busy Busy

Its the 16th November and the weather has been kind to us. As a result, we have been able to make more progress in the garden areas. Hundreds of bulbs have now been planted - thanks to your generosity and six more trees were also planted yesterday too. The little fishing dinghy on the traffic island has lots of daffodils and red tulips planted and all the little flower boats have daffodils and polyanthus in them. We have had a big debate about the lovely geraniums which we grew from tiny plug plants. Some people have said that if we pot them and protect them over the winter we will be able to reuse them. Others have said that we could leave them in situ over the winter and they will flourish again. You will probably not be surprised to learn that we have decided to do a little experiment so half have been repotted and half left in the ground to see what happens. We have also started to improve the area at the head of the cycle path. Ian went to the recoiling centre and collected lots of Angus Council’s lovely soil enricher to rake into the sandy soil. We are hoping to develop this area into something really colourful and interesting next summer.
