While I got on with the digging in the fruit cage Thomas cleared and weeded the soft fruit area of the cage. It is now time to clear all plants that are not wanted in the area and move around the ‘forget-me-nots’. The ‘forget-me-nots’ are very good at making a sea of blue in the spring but also useful at not letting the weeds come through in the area they are growing, it is like having an extra gardener. There are still far too many plants in the area but I am hoping that the gardeners will take away more plants to use in the borders. In the new year it till be time to prune the soft fruit.
