It's official. Deadheading the roses finished on the 25th March.
Autumn is a wonderful time to be out and about with many calm, warm days, perfect for strolling. There are still lots of flowers on the bushes. So come for a visit before the spent blooms lessen the colourful display.
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) cleaning & reorganising sheds, pruning in the heritage border, making new mats and cleaning, oiling 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!
