Garden Enhancement

Much work has been completed in the garden over the past week or two.  Thanks to such efficient workers from SCOTBARK laying bark chips and pathways in the centre of the garden.

A wide selection of Spring Bulbs has been planted, really looking forward to seeing them appear next spring.

Some photos of the mammoth Spring bulb planting. What a difference that machine makes to plant bulbs. Looks a bit like moles have been busy.

Many thanks also to our EC Park Manager and Rangers The grass was cut for the last time before winter yesterday and the rangers helped blow all the leaves into piles for our Leaf Mulch compost bin. So much achieved in so short time.

What an amazing difference this team made, and we have four new members to the Friends of Hopetoun Crescent Garden plus 2 new volunteers to help us maintain the grounds weekly. Congratulations and Many Thanks, abrdn.plc.
