New beds (plant ones that it)
« on: October 23, 2012, 08:04:30 pm »
Today I spent a little time playing with the rotovator so that I can start getting some new flower beds ready (given possibility of frost later this week). Not the most interesting looking thing in the world - but when the 2,500 or so daffodil bulbs; alliums and so on. Must remember to put the bulbs in deep enough to keep the rabbits away!


Ask me next spring if it's worth it!

Looks a good start and it should be stupendous in the spring.  Don't forget the photos then.

Photos will definitely be provided.


Learnt something today - do not put your hand on the top of the rotovator engine after using it, when bending down to pick something up.... as it leaves a rather nice burn on the palm of your hand!

Going to have to stop looking at your piccies, they all make my place look like a slag heap   :huff:

On the other hand I have a kick upthe a&£3 to do something constructive in the heap after seeing your designs, so keep them coming  ;D  ;D
Look forward to seeing this result come spring  :thumbsup:
