Endless work in the Shamrock Garden and the Lily Wood. Working in the bamboo bed, thinning out bamboos, stripping leaves from the straightest ones and storing for future use. Clearing beds trying not to step on the thousands of bulbs coming up, cutting down herbaceous plants, raking leaves and doing all the spring-cleaning necessary at this time of the year. Fourteen people can get an enormous amount of work done, a great buzz of activity with laden wheelbarrows being brought to the dump for recycling. Lovely warm spring day, no coats.
Nursery day next Wednesday. How will fourteen people fit into the nursery? Alan won’t panic.
