Wed 17th April 2013 - Ventnor Botanical Gardens.



Our second visit in two weeks saw us again at Ventnor Botanic Gardens.  It was certainly considerably warmer than our last visit, and we had over 30 people at the session.  We were working at the back of the gardens in a slightly different area to last week.  Our tasks were to remove bramble and ivy from a small area - taking care there were no nesting birds of course. The second and much larger task involved cutting back brambles, dead trees and dogwood, and stacking all the off-cuts into large piles.  This would open up a view across the garden and they are hoping the dogwood will regenerate some new growth, so you can see the lovely rich red colour of the branches.

Many thanks to Carrie for the blog this week.
