Ten Years Of The Worcester College Gardener's Blog, 2009-2018

The front quad 2018

As another year draws to an end and the college closes its doors for the customary Christmas break, it is also time to bring the Worcester College Gardener's blog to an end.
It began in February 2009, and for ten years through almost 1,500 posts, it has covered the activities of the gardening team and the lives of some of the wildlife that inhabit the gardens. 
As custodians of the gardens the team has a responsibility to both preserve and improve the historic gardens that so many have done before them, as well as providing a beautiful picturesque and tranquil environment for the staff, fellows, alumni and the visitors of today. Hopefully the blog has given a small insight into the work of the team and their achievements.
The team would like to thank you all for the support you have given them over the last decade through the reading of the blog, for the questions you have asked, for the generosity of your many comments and for taking the time to visit the gardens.  
As this is the last entry, and Christmas is only a few days away, they would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
