17th June 2018 – Ickworth

We returned this week to Ickworth’s walled garden to continue working on the dahlia beds. A month ago we lifted the winter covers off the dahlias and weeded the whole length (unfortunately we have no photos from this task!). In the meantime the dahlias have begun to regrow, and we were put to work constructing frames to support them. A bit of weeding was also required, and the border edge was cut out along one of the beds. Finally we gave most of them a “feed” with a pile of mulch.

Well done everyone, and thank you to Ickworth for once again providing refreshments at the end of the day.
