A Week Working On Wisteria And Climbing Roses
With the climbers in the quad pruned before Christmas the team turned their attention to those at the back of the ancient cottages. All week the ladders have been up against the stone as they chopped, pruned, rewired and put up new wires for the Wisteria and climbing roses.
Several new wires had to be put up to anchor the old, heavy stems of Wisteria as well as the new stems of the roses which took some time. Five days and the work is now complete, now they have to wait until the April/May for the Wisteria to flower before they start to see the fruits of their labour.
