Deene Park, Corby

As part of a 6-week project, Members with Staff members John and Dan, will be volunteering to help out in the gardens of the Estate of Deene Park.

Deene Parks Head Gardener, Andrew, has set us to work in one of the walled gardens, preparing some planters. It was hard work shifting bags of peat.  The plants had to be handled with care.  Following the diagram prepared by Andrew and under instruction from Sam, one of the experienced gardeners at the Estate the group was shown how to place the plants and flowers to best effect. 

Members John, Robson & James are really enjoying being part of this Gardening Project, learning so much along the way.
