Warm and sunny

Achillea "Cassis"
Yesterday Matt and I went out to weed and prune a bit, and today I did another few hours of tidying up.

The front border had all the corn marigolds removed and the Artemisias and Achilleas deadheaded. The middle back bed and brights bed got some weeding. I chatted with Dee and pulled more corn marigolds out of the back border too.

I think the cardoon (Cynara cardunculus) is almost done for the year - going to have to cut that down soon. We'll save that for the volunteer day - that's a fun project. I found four little baby cardoons down in the back of the garden too - must have seeded itself over there. I potted them up - perhaps we can find a spot for more of these crazy plants?

  1. You rock! Thanks especially for weeding the brights bed, I'm sure it needed it.
