So, I’ve planted out my foxgloves (and the crappy lupins)

After the excellent sounding advice on here from Kal, I planted out my foxgloves and what was left of the crappy lupins on Sunday.  I felt awesome for having done it – it’s one of those jobs that you think will take about 45 minutes but actually takes about two hours.

I planted the bigger ones out first, in the wildflower meadow.  Some of them really are incredibly leggy – am not convinced that all will survive.

The smaller ones, I put in the lower garden with the heuchera and acers.  I hope that they will be able to do battle with some of the weeds that come up there – although really, that is not all that weedy a bed.

  1. I will never have clean hands again… I can scrub with an angle grinder and they will still be mucky!

    How were the lupins and foxgloves… Were they pot-bound? Its great if they were, this means they should start on stiffening up the main stem rather than spend time building roots and they should improve some in the soil.

    A good job done. B-)

  2. The foxgloves were pot bound and I had a go at untangling the roots but definitely ripped some. The lupins were almost a bulb with a few new leaves coming up.

    It’s meant to rain all day today – I’m glad I planted them out when I did.
