Moving To The Other Side
Having cut down and mulched the herbaceous and Casson (Goldfish Bowl) borders last week, the team start on the other side of the college, The Ruskin Building.
With a conference going on in the building, the border had to be cut down using secateurs and not the noisy hedge trimmers. A very slow process, the area took all day to cut down and mulch, but another border is complete as we move towards the xmas shut down.
Oxford, The gardens are usually open afternoons 2-5pm (Winter 2-4pm)
We're a motley crew varying in age and experience, bravely lead by the head of gardens and grounds, Simon Bagnall. Nine of us in total:
Simon - Head Of Gardens And Grounds,
Ady - Foreman, Second in Command,
Ali - All round plantswoman and blog writer, Kieron - Hippy Handyman & Fruit Tree Guru,
Joss - Grass Aficionado,
Graham - Good Ole Boy,
Callum - No Longer A Budding Apprentice, Qualified!, Andy - Groundsman, Peter - Apprentice
