Gone In Just 40 Minutes
The night time temperatures have dropped between 5 to10 degrees centrigrade causing a slight panic due to the potential damage to the tender plants that are creating the summer displays around the college. First to be removed to the safety of the greenhouse is the display in the Provost's Courtyard, for photographs of the display being planted up see blog entry 3rd June 'A New Central Display'.
Having taken many hours to create, the display is gone in just 40 minutes. The majority of the plants were taken to the greenhouse and potted up for use next year, some were potted up as stock plants, in case the cuttings fail, and a few were taken to the compost heap.
By the end of the day the display is in a new form, all separated but in the warmth of the greenhouse.
