A Weed and Mulch
Sunshine and a sprinkling of water from the sprinkler hoses have created the perfect conditions for weeds to grow. Yesterday Ady, Simon and Joe spent the day weeding the Provost's Rose Garden, joined by Graham later in the day.
Today they were joined by Ali and Kieron. Ali removed all the weeds that had grown in between the slabs whilst Kieron applied a mulch to all the yew columns. The garden is now clear of weeds and is ready for the stunning display due in the next month.
