For the first time since September 2016 a small working party of volunteers returned to the Park Field to resume our traditional role of ‘scrub-bashing’, while a second work party continued to tackle recently scheduled tasks in the Fernery.
We started to clear the scrub around the sequoia at the entrance to the Park Field next to the new cattle corral. Strimmers were used to gain access to the scrub growing around the base of the sequoia, and then loppers.
We expect that next month we will continue to clear scrub at this point, before moving further along the same path.
Harry led the team to install wire around the entire three-tiered May Bed which has recently been planted with geraniums, before weeding and watering all the beds. The dropping well basin was also cleaned out once again following the successful experimental fill on Open Day the previous weekend.
