Wed 11th May 2011 - Ventnor Botanical Gardens.


Team GG were "down south" this week - back at one of our favourite venues - The Botanical Gardens. The pictures above do not reflect the good turnout and with the weather holding, our tasks in the hop gardens were soon well underway. The rows of hop plants on the frames had become very overgrown with weeds so it was all hands to the trowels to get the unwanted growth away and then tie and support the hop plants on to the climbing frames. Other GG members tackled some overgrown areas around the edges so the whole area was looking much more cared for by the time 1 pm came around. Some of the team took advantage of an offer for a guided tour of the gardens by one of the support staff - many thanks for showing them around. Please don't forget to invite us back at picking time and again when the hops have been brewed into ale....!!!!

This week it is a big thank you to Carrie for the photographs.
