Battening down the hatches

Weather: Cold in the morning, milder in the day. Slightly overcast.

Friday 21st - today's order of the day was staking up some Dahlia trees - imperalis as the tail end of a storm is coming towards us on Monday.

Then there was more planting in the Exotic Garden, I added some ferns to the base of a Colocasia fontanesii which has these long naked stems so it can be a bit sparse beneath their leaves, so we filled out the space underneath with some delicate Adiantum tenerum 'Farleyense' and Dryopteris erythrosora. They were great plants to work with it was easy to make them look like they had always been there or that they had sprouted up there themselves.
