Putting our Backs into Bulb Planting

Thanks to a good turnout of willing volunteers we completed the planting of the 2000 bulbs kindly donated through the City Council this weekend.

Janice and Vinnie – brains and brawn – always a good combination!

It was a crisp, if not actually cold day, and this helped spur us on to complete the task in a couple of hours or less.

Rod (new to Plot 45) and Sylvia practise their new routine for Strictly.

This week we dispensed with the specialised bulb planting tools and made much faster progress with spades and forks.

Dave and Agnes (New to their micro-plot) give Stuart a hand.

Once finished we retreated to the Bothy for a well-earned cup of tea and cake – young and old!

Thanks to all who answered the call (including Frank who I failed to get on film) and made short work of the planting. Roll on Spring and what we all hope will be a welcome burst of colour around the site to welcome in another growing season.
