Wrags trainee gets stuck in with the saw
Rachael is our WRAGS (Women Returning to Amenity Gardening Scheme) trainee for this year, and started in October. The scheme is run by the Womens Farm and Garden Association (WFGA). Today she got stuck into removing an old overgrown ceanothus which was smothering a lovely shrub rose near the entrance gate. On a chilly morning its also the quickest way to warm up and start removing the layers we are all bundled up in. Once the bulk had been removed, I am sure you could hear the rose breathe a sigh of relief, as fresh air wound its way around the stems, blowing away the cobwebs (along with any bugs and diseases hanging around).
