Three Borders In One Day

The plants arrived last week and the border was prepared in January, it is now time to plant up our new winter themed border. Ady, Graham, Joe, Simon and Ali, along with our student volunteer, Johnny, transport the plants from the nursery area to the border ready for planting.
Simon has designed the planting scheme; Euonymus Fortunei 'Emerald Gaiety', Sarcococca confusa, Fatsia japonica and Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill', he places the plants in their positions ready for the team to plant them.

Once planted, a mulch is added to the border, the paths swept and all the plants are watered in. Two other borders were worked on today, Ali finished creating a border at the end of the Serpentine bed in the Ruskin Building area, whilst Ady and Graham started to renovate an old border in the Canal Building car park ready for planting tomorrow. Three borders in one day.
