Spring

Readers of the blog may recall that last autumn, due to the vagaries of the local planning authority, we resorted to violently deracinating a number of established shrubs by tying them to the Volvo and excavating them with heavy plant. We hang-draw-quartered a lilac tree and spread the dismembered parts of it around the site. Most of the plants seem to have survived the ordeal and are showing signs of new growth.


The jury is still out on the Potentilla fruticosa, and the Viburnum tinus does not look very well.


Lilacs regenerating.
