New Cut Flower Bed in the making

This bed had some old roses in it that had been there for years some more than a decade, so we thought it was time for something new and a bit of a change.Firstly we dug out the old, kept the ones that were strong and that we liked and then replanted them elsewhere. next in with that "marvelous machine" Marvin the Rotavator !!
With a quick rake to even out the soil, we used a length of wood divided the space up equally, laid some builders sand so we knew where are edge lines were and then planted in some lupins and tulips that had been elsewhere,the dahlias will follow shortly when its warmed up a bit more and I will post some photos so you can see how it all works.
