A change of tack this year. Not satisfied with the return from pots or bags of potatoes, I decided to put some in the ground. I'm using the patch near the greenhouse where the remnants of the haybale and a mess of roots are slowly rotting away. Ten Nicola seed potatoes have been planted here. They will not get much attention. I'll be interested to see what I get.

I bought some summer bulbs today as well. Two lilies, eight gladioli and some liatris. The lilies will go in a pot. The others into the pink garden behind the frog. I'm trying to fill it out a bit.
