Digging In The Morning

The first garden thing I did this morning after five hours sleep was to dig a big hole in the left hand border. I moved a few plants around to accomodate the new arrival. The Rose bush Lady Emma Hamilton.I added some home made compost and the last compost from my bag to the roots, then watered it in.
The stones were put back on around the rose's heel to keep the weeds out and as an ornamentation.
The Label reads David Austin Roses on one side, and Lady Emma Hamilton on the other.
I will monitor its growing progress on the Blog, hopefully to some beautifully scented flowers in Apricot andCopper.
Next stop is to buy a bin for storing cleared plant and grass debris from the allotment.Its cloudy but dry at the moment, fingers crossed it stays dry.
