Step by step on The Verge

In preparation for planting, Graham and Richard attacked the roots, (left when the Verge was cut back), with pick axes last week. What a tough job it was. The Verge had not been touched since it was planted 37 years ago, so along with amazing partially buried shrub branches, old cobbles and litter (a black sack full of plastic and cans), the treasures that were unearthed, were quite surprising. Anyone missing a crystal vase or a cup from their tea set?
