Weaving Plant Supports

Once all the shingle had been moved yesterday Ali, Simon and Kieron moved on to the herbaceous border to make this year's plant supports. Continuing today they created more supports, twisting birch in to many differant shapes and sizes, also using recently cut cornus from the gardens to weave around bamboo canes. The supports will eventually become invisible as the plants grow up through and around them. (For more information on the birch used for the supports, see blog 26th February 2014 'Coppicing Birch')
