Transplanting


We have been busy trying to tidy up the garden before the onset of winter, but time is rapidly running out.  One of the jobs was to move this holly bush, which was so close to the drive that it was going to be damaged in the event of heavy snowfall and ploughing.  It is now located closer to the house and seems quite perky after the soil was prepared with the addition of lots of compost.



Bulb planting has been underway for the last few weeks.  English Bluebells were the first bulbs to go in and are planted under the maple tree in the front garden.  There are still many daffodil bulbs to get in before the ground freezes, so I'm hoping to have them in by the end of this week.

Good luck with the last of your garden jobs, Marie! The end-of-year garden clean up always seems to take longer than expected... LOL! English Bluebells... *swoon*... Those are going to look soooo beautiful at your place come next spring!! Hope all goes OK with your holly bush. I've always wanted a holly bush... Maybe one day. ;) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))
