Rain rain go away, come again another day

Wednesday 17 April 2013

 The turfing in the Italian Garden had gone according to plan for the last few weeks with perfect weather.   Then, with just one corner to finish, rolls of grass at the ready, the rains came on Tuesday night.   Sam Thompson, Contractor, was not a happy man when rain stopped play.

Nursery work today. Cleaning up hundreds of plants in the poly tunnel, where they had been overwintered, taking off moss and dead leaves. Some of these were moved into the Shade House which allows all rain through, 50% shade and 50% breeze. Some are being kept in the poly tunnel until all danger of frost is gone. The space made was filled up with seedlings from the heated greenhouse which were being potted on to 3 litre pots in the potting shed. So there was great team work, dashing from one place to another, with everyone to her own job. I think Alan was quite impressed with all the work we got done, but then he does have a way with words.
