Almost Ready For The Encaenia
Last week the team prepared the Provost's garden for the Encaenia garden party and, over the last two days, have now focused their attention to the Nuffield lawn area. As the first of the marquees arrive and are set up on the lawn, Ali worked on the herbaceous border filling all the gaps with plants, weeding, forking it through and edging it, whilst the other team members worked in other surrounding areas.
The winter border was weeded and Linbury entrance blown through to clear all the tree debris that has fallen over recent weeks. At the back of the lawn the large shrub borders were weeded, edged and topped off with a new mulch of wood chippings.
