After a relaxing weekend, it is time to go back to work! On Tuesday we worked in the Alpine Terrace, an area of the garden where Lawrence Johnston would trial plants he had collected during his world travels.
Afterwards, we aerated the lawns of the Stilt Garden and the Red Border. By using digging forks, we decompressed the soil, so it could then be fertilized.
On Wednesday, we worked in the Long Borders. The major tasks were weeding and deadheading, which are vital to ensure a well kept garden.
After the workday. I usually stop by the Winthrop’s cafe for a treat.
