It's official. Deadheading the roses finished on the 9th April. The welcome rain actually stopped the volunteers from working on the day but during breaks between the showers there was time to admire the flowers on so many bushes.
COME TO SEE THE ROSES. Autumn is a wonderful time to be out and about. As you can see from the photos there are still lots of flowers on the bushes. So come for a visit before the spent blooms lessen the colourful display.
Mr Lincoln has been flowering beautifully. (Petal B)
It is not a time to rest however for the volunteers as there is always work to be done at the Garden. Just to name a few jobs for the coming weeks, weeding (never ending) painting and repairing the bench seats, pruning in the heritage border, making new mats and cleaning and sharpening our secateurs carefully for the pruning season in early June. There are also roses to come out and beds to be prepared for the new ones going in!
