Thanks for your comments, everyone. We have had some very low temperatures recently. We had to pick-axe the ground to break through the frozen soil. Deeper into the soil it was soft so we divided and transplanted some bamboos.

I had several bulbs which I hadn't got round to planting. It was impossible to plant bulbs near the surface so I decided to pot up them up. The bag of compost was frozen and even jumping up and down on it didn't break up! I had to resort to going off to the garden centre to buy more compost - only to be given hundreds of bulbs which they were going to throw away! The challenge will be to plant them before the ground freezes again.

We planted the large, blue, Ceder Atlantica as a 6 foot high, wispy specimen 16 years ago. You can see how wide the trunk is now but the overall size has been contained by clipping the branches into cloud shapes.
