The Provost's Drive Border
Two years ago the team spent three days clearing the overgrown border next to the Provost's drive, see blog entry 5th March 2012 'The Provost's Drive'. Since then the weeds, mainly bindweed, have been controlled by regular spraying with the weedkiller Glyphosate, the final application being last summer.
Today Ady, Graham and Callum planted the border with the winter flowering shrub, Sarcococca confusa, Sweet Box, which, in a few years time, will fill the air with their fragrance, see blog entry 5th February 'Sweet Smell Of Winter Flowering Shrubs'. Once all the Sarcococca had been planted the border was finished off with the addition of a leaf mould mulch.
