The plants are now approved and arriving. The poly tunnel is holding back the alpines where necessary and the remaining plants are arriving next week.
Its been a while since I uploaded any up image or update. Since the middle of May I’ve been full on with the garden competition. 31st May, the Steel panel arrived safely at college for the blacksmiths to put on a frame. Rather than a rusted effect I decided to keep it with the steel look. The result has been effective and striking. Thanks to Juliet Grant for her support and the rest of her team for getting this delivered at the 11th hour!!!.
The team including Bernice Keagan, Matt Jessop , Grant, Gregor, Colin and Raymond and students, Conor, Stuart and Alex came together to assemble to all the elements of the garden.
So on the 2nd June. I set up early to get the water feature on and the water topped up. Final dead heading and a final water. At 1pm the judges made their decision and gave us the highly commended prize. Woohoo.
