Having finished his morning brush, Josh swaps his brush for a trowel and joins the other members of the team in planting the bulbs and plants in to the main quad border. This winters colour scheme is blue and white; the blue from Mysotis sylvatica 'Mon Amie Blue', grown from seed and Hyacinth 'Delft Blue' with the white Tulip 'White Emperor'.

A Very Large Brush and Six Trowels
As the weather starts to get colder in the mornings, dew starts to form on the lawns creating perfect breeding conditions for the lawn fungus, Fusarium. In order to minimise the risk of this desease developing, Josh regularly brushes the main quad lawn removing the dew as well as causing the grass leaf to stand up which, when mowing, helps to produce a cleaner cut.
