The Winter Display Planting Begins
Having cleared the oak pots of their summer display on Monday, today they were planted up with the winter display plants. Many of the plants used, Holly, Phormium, Willow and Fatsia were removed from displays around the college at the end of May and heeled in to the new nursery bed where they were stored until now. Wallflowers and Pansies, grown from seed, were also added to the new display.
