Hard Working HSBC

We were blessed with the glorious sunny afternoon we were dreaming of for our visit from HSBC volunteers to re-vamp a section of the terraced beds. Undaunted by the enormous weeds, which faced them, the 7 women soon got to grips with the task and achieved a transformation Ground Force would be proud of.


Just visible behind the willowherb 6 of our volunteers.


Mulching with leafmould once cleared.


The plants are gathered together and Ros Laidlaw the Landscape Architect originally responsible for the reconstruction of the garden begins to lay them out ready for planting.


Once the plants are in their places everyone got stuck in to beautifying our newly cleared bed.


A drink of water to get them started from Judith and her team.


The finished bed, full of Agapanthus, Hemerocallis, Crocosmiia and some lovely shrubby Cistus (Rock Rose), Fuchsia, Genista (Broom) and another Prostranthera cuneata (New Zealand Mint Bush) to name a few. I will post more photos as the year progresses and we can watch this bed fill out and flower. Once again a big thankyou to the team at HSBC for their hard work!
