Euphorbia schillingii

Having planted the Serpentine bed three yeears ago, the Euphorbia schillingii has now taken over, smothering some plants and collapsing. Its vigorous stems shoot up each spring and have created large, robust mounds which now need to be removed.

Joe and Ali start cutting down the Euphorbia, joined by Simon, Ady and Graham who help get all the mounds out, which put up quite a fight.

Back in the nursery area, Kieron is repairing the wooden cold frame structure which has started to rot. He cuts out the worst areas and replaces it with new wood ready for coats of preservative, which will be added over the next few days.
