The Rose Garden is looking a lot better, the roses are pruned and most of the beds are less weed-choked than before. We’re told that the new roses are now due in mid-February to be planted later on that month. All the beds in the garden will be mulched with mushroom compost in the next few weeks, and that should help to keep the weeds at bay.
Volunteers in the Rose Garden are doing a great job. If you’d like to come along you’d be very much welcomed. Meet Park Ranger Emma at 10.30am outside the Rotunda on the following Saturdays:
- 15 February
- 15 March
- 12 April
- 24 May
Wear sturdy shoes and bring gardening gloves if you have them. Emma will provide refreshments, experience isn’t needed.
There’s been interest expressed for a mid-week Rose Garden volunteering group too. Just think: healthy exercise, good company, working in the sunny outdoors, making a real difference to your park . . . If you’re interested come along to the Men’s Bowls Pavilion at 11.15am on Thursday 20 March when we’ll meet up with Emma and decide on the weekday volunteering routine.
