Planting out the daisies

The rain has softened up the ground nicely so I've planted out the ox-eye daisies in a drift in the orchard. I used a bulb planter to do this. You could just use a trowel of course but a bulb planter does the job really quickly: a 10cm planter makes just the right sized hole for plants in 9cm pots. I made holes an inch deeper than the pots, filled the bottom of the holes with an inch of clean top soil, watered the holes then bunged them in.

Job done. Canes put in round the drift to stop me wandering all over the new planting:
