Three years ago the gardening team completed a six month project renovating the Provost's Rose Garden, see photo above. The old garden had become tired and high maintenance, so was completely cleared in order to start again with a blank canvas. Three years ago the new lawn had just been laid, Yew columns, perennials and roses just planted.
For the last two days, the team have been in the rose garden again, but only to keep the grass mown and edged, the borders weed free and to lift any perennials that have grown too big over the last three years. As can be seen by the photo below, the garden has matured extremely well.
