With the digging completed in the greenhouse on the 31st March, the team have moved on to preparing the brick walls ready for painting. Before this could start, the soil was moved away from the wall, a wire brush was then used to rub down all the brick work to remove any moss and then allowed to dry. A base coat of PVA, Polyvinyl Acetate, was then applied by Joe, in order to seal and protect the bricks as well as creating a cohesive surface for the white paint to be added later. Lucy then added a second coat of PVA and we now waiting for this to dry so we can apply the top coat of white paint.
