The herbaceous border is turning in to its autumn phase with the warm, earthy colours becoming more dominant.

However, the border is in need of some adjustments due to the arrival of a large amount of scaffolding that will be erected behind it. Last week, 3rd September, in preparation for the scaffolding, an access route had to be created through the border by removing the plants that had grown over the path.

Once behind the border Ali, Kieron and Simon continued to cut back the perennials at the rear as well as reducing the depth of the wisteria on the wall and removing it from around the windows.

By Saturday afternoon the erecting of the scaffolding had been completed, a huge structure dwarfing the border below. It will remain in place for the next two to three weeks as all the window frames and gables are repaired and then painted.
