Getting A Head Start
With the warmish weather still with us, the team have started to prune the wisteria, campsis and roses in the front quadrangle along with completing the pruning of the grapevine in the Pump Quad.
The weather has enabled us to start the pruning of the climbers early, usually started on our return after the christmas break, see blog entry 10th January 2011 'First Day of Many', therefore enabling us to get a head start for 2012.
