Holes In The Ground
Making holes in the ground was the order of the day today. Joss, Callum and our volunteer gardener, Crystal, spent the day spiking the banks whilst Graham and Ali spent their time planting 300 bulbs in the college grounds. 100 tulips were planted in the orchard to bulk up the wonderful display of 'National Velvet' and 'China Pink' that appear in May underneath the apple blossom, 60 Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation' were planted in the tree fern glade and 40 in the serpentine border along with 50 Tulipa 'Spring Green' ,and 50 Tulipa 'Ronaldo' and 'Jimmy' were planted in the pump quad pots.
