Working bee

This morning a group of Friends and our fabulous gardeners started planting out the many new plants into the Friends bed.  Very hard work for the diggers, given the overall mass of tree roots throughout the bed.  Still looking a bit skimpy as mostly only the smaller plants around the boarders were bedded in.  Once the rest go in - wow!

A slightly Mexican look

Except that the person is sitting under a jubaea - a Chilean Wine Palm.
Just a little out of focus.

Working bee

Now that our new plants are here it's time to plant them out.  So - we've scheduled a working bee for Saturday 27 April, 10am - 1pm.  Meet at the glasshouses on Blessington Street. Bring your gardening gloves and trowels.  If we all pitch in it shouldn't take too long to get all the plants into the bed - especially as we'll have two gardeners assisting.  Refreshments provided of course.

At last - our new plants have arrived

The van Berkel truck arrived late this afternoon with its treasure load of plants from Yamina Collectors Nursery.  So late that the gardeners had to stay back after work - thank you all!  And thanks to Noel, the driver, for patiently fielding all the "where are you" phone calls.
