Changes In The Rose Garden

Over the last three days the team have spent their time in the Rose Garden tidying it up for the winter and making a few changes.

A number of grasses had already been removed since the Rose Garden was restored back in 2007, but the remaining few have now got too big and needed to be lifted and split, and the new smaller clumps replanted. Another plant the team had to remove was the violet-blue Geranium 'Brookside' which was planted a few years ago to replace the pink Geranium x oxonianum 'A T Johnson' which had also got too big.
By the end of the three days all ten of the borders had been weeded, roses cut back, plants lifted and split, geraniums removed, tulips planted and the lawn mowed.
