With the tropical bed having been ripped out and prepared last week, 5th October blog entry 'All Out', today saw it being planted up for its winter display.
This years colour scheme is orange and black, the colours of Halloween. The Cornus and Photinia used in last years display, that have been heeled in elsewhere in the college ready for their re use in this years display, are dug up and re planted in their new positions. The Violas 'Sorbet Mixed Halloween' are planted in the front half of the border, with the Wallflower 'Orange Sunset' planted in the back half. In amongst all the plants the Tulips 'Ballerina' and 'Burgandy' are planted, by May expect a crescendo of colour.
