Cottage Border


The herbaceous cut down continued toady with the cutting down of the cottage borders in the front quad. Ali, Lizzie, one of our volunteer gardeners returning to work with the team today, and Simon used secateurs to cut it down (hedge trimmers are too noisy for use in the quad). Simon and Ali remembering last years discovery, a hibernating hedgehog, see blog entry 'Let Sleeping Hedgehog Lie', 29th November 2011, nervously cut down the Anemone in that area where it was found, worried it might not have made it through last winter. Relief was felt by both as there were no signs of it, a successful hibernation we hope.
