It has now been almost 2 months spent at Longwood, I have been so busy I have struggled to find time for blogging.
I started my time here at Longwood in the Outdoor display rotation, and have been doing all sorts of different tasks.
I started my Rotation helping Andy in his area out in the ‘Parking Lot’ otherwise known as the car park.
My second week in outdoor display was an eventful one, it was display change time on the flower garden walk. Which meant it was time for dig out, discard and replace.
Once everything had been removed from the beds it was time for planting…
Within the outdoor display team there are three sections, I was lucky enough to rotate through them all, next up was Harold’s area. Here we set about mulching under this box hedging.
First stop was the Brooklyn Botanic Garden…..
Next I had hear a lot about the highline as was eager to visit, lucky for me my friend lived just around the corner…
The weekend was over and it was back to work in the outdoor display team, one particularly interesting job was jumping in some waders and weeding ‘The Island’
Almost every Thursday there are student field trips arranged to places of interest in the local area. My favourite so far has got to be Ladew Topiary Gardens.
Next I will be working in the grounds department……
