Why do bare rooted shrubs have to come in the worst weather? We had been expecting these since November and they turned up from the specialists this week.
Been wandering around with a wheelbarrow of damp compost, muddy spades and even muddier wellies putting in another 15 feet of British native hedging root stock at the far end of our field. One day there will be a hedge - not just planted "sticks"!
Mind you with the mist today we can't even see the end of the field from the house!
