a temporary new home for our plants

There are advantages to sandy soils: for instance they warm up quickly in spring .

Another advantage is that when it comes to taking apart your much-loved garden and transport the plants to a new temporary home, it can be done relatively easily.

At 8:00am this morning these plants were sitting in the garden, quite unaware that they were going on holiday.

By 11:58am they had all been dug out, loaded onto the trailer, barrowed up to their temporary home and planted!

We hope to give them a thick blanket of well-rotted horse manure before they are tucked up until 2012 and moved again (hopefully finally) to their permanent positions.
