Last tidyup before Spring

It was a mild day in Suffolk, and not raining so I had a chance to tidy up in the garden – a task I had not anticipated doing until March!

I cleared Japanese Anemones off the paving and cut down the sedums – both are on the compost heap now. And although it is winter there are lots of colourful treats if you look carefully.

And in the front garden I pruned the roses, cut the Verbena Bonariensis to the ground, and cut down the clematis – all were growing. Was this wise? Well, the deed is done and they have to make the best of it! And early treats are close to the ground.
