A Bowl With No Goldfish
The Goldfish Bowl borders (The Casson Building) have been looking messy for the last few weeks now that the summer display has faded, so it is time to tidy them up.
Graham, Ali and Callum work together cutting down, clearing and removing the herbaceous material to the compost heaps. As with the herbaceous border, see blog entry 'Herbaceous Cut Back', 6th November 2012, the hedge trimmer is used for a quicker cut down and any rough cuts, especially on the large Euphorbia schillingii, are cleaned up with the secateurs.
By the end of the day the cutting down is complete, the borders weeded and left tidy, ready for mulching tomorrow.
