My dad has given me a load of autumn fruiting raspberries which wered surplus to his requirements. I have decided to put all my fruit bushes together, this means the dahlias I have been rescuing need to be moved some where else. This strip of land seemed a good place so that when you look to the far end of the plot you will see a great display of dahlias.
The only problem was the matted couch grass and impressive docks which have become established over the winter and spring. I made a start last night ...
and then went back down this morning to finish the job off. The sun was beating down but luckily there was quite a cool breeze - good job really because I would have given up if it wasn't for the breeze !
It was worth the effort becuse even if I say so myself, my trench looks quite good !!
Have you ever seen tubers this big ?? This is just from one plant !!
