I'd noticed that bulbs were starting to pop through in the flower bed at the front of the house, so I have been meaning to cut back the perennials to allow the shoots access to more light and to improve the air circulation around them.
It was dry and bright today so, in order to give the bulbs the best chance of performing, I decided to try and get the job done .
The bed isn't very large but I still managed to remove three large compost bags full of plant debris. This will be added to the compost bins on the plot.There's still some tidying up to do but at least now we can see the various bulbs shooting.
Over the years I have planted all sorts of bulbs here so it is always interesting to see which have survived.
