Spring has arrived.

Our volunteers have finally completed all the rose pruning. This was a huge task as many of the more mature roses were congested with old, dead stems which needed to be cut out. We are still urging people to support our Rose Appeal so that we can restock more beds in the Autumn. During July we hope to organise some time for volunteers to meet to deadhead the rose bushes after their first flush of flowers to prolong the season.  I have created a collage to show which shrubs and perennials are at their finest at the moment. You can see Berberis, Forsythia, Rhododendron, Erysimum Bowles Mauve,Pulmonaria, Comfrey and forget-me-nots. There are also many wallflowers and Lunaria annua just opening. Come along and see for yourself.
