Outside on the Nuffield Lawn, the arborist team from the Unversity Parks, spent the day thinning out the large evergreen Holm Oak, Quercus ilex. The tree has been casting a large shadow over the herbaceous border and was becoming very top heavy, the team have been removing branches creating space for any new growth and for the sun to shine through.

Our order of compost arrived today, ready for the hundreds of cuttings that will taken in September and their subsequent potting on through out winter and spring. Once the phone call came to let us know the delivery van was on its way, the compost bay had to be emptied to make space for it, the 25kg bags were then neatly stacked.
