Basket Making

The first task for the team upon their return from the Easter break was to mow the banks, Nuffield and Provost's lawn, and water the plants in the greenhouse. The remainder of the day was then spent on the herbaceous border creating the Birch baskets and wigwams that will support all the medium to large plants in this years display.

The frames give a new sculptured look to the border adding to the new fresh growth of the perennials, a rather sculptured look. If you look at each basket carefully different shapes begin to appear, we have seen Elephants, Camels and even The Leaning Tower of Pisa!
