After Lunch, DH volunteered to do the heavy digging and plant our new bargains.
At our local Woolworths store, we managed to get dirt-cheap (pardon the pun) a load of shrubs and trees, at prices ranging from 50p to £1.00.
We are now the proud owners of ;-
2 Japanese Maple Trees (ok, they are only about 8 inches high, but what the heck...they will grow !);
A forsythia bush,
a Buddleia bush,
a baby Lilac tree,
4 Raspberry canes,
a thornless Blackberry bush,
a Gooseberry bush,
and 3 Grape vines
Even better, we got the lot for much less than £10.00 :-)
DH is now upstairs in bed, prostrate with exhaustion and psyching himself up ready for work in the morning.
I will be adding fervent prayers for protection from frost for my new baby plants to my evening prayers !
