If you’ve visited the boat base on a Wednesday recently, you can’t fail to have noticed a hive of activity in the garden – and we’re not only talking bees here (which are indeed plentiful and active)! Gardeners Judy and Martin have been masterminding something of an overhaul in the planting. The original gardens were professionally designed over 8 years ago by Reachout and some of the specimens were showing their age. Judy has kindly written these notes for the benefit of keen gardeners amongst you. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Judy, Martin, Margaret, Toni and all other volunteer gardeners for making our grounds something to be so proud of. Much of the work takes place over winter months so it’s not always great fun!
