Counting down to Renovation Day
Thousands of spring bulbs have been planted over the past years. In a few weeks’ time, the renovation process is going to start and the ground will be ploughed up for future planting. So we are trying to retrieve as many as possible and find new homes for them – permanent or temporary – in the meantime.
Children at Virginia School have been resonsible for planting them over the years. Last week children from Year 3 came up onto the Circus to help lift them and store them.
They dug and discovered hidden bulbs, and found out – from Andy – how to tell a daffodil bulb from a crocus or a bluebell.
They transferred them to a series of tubs that will find their way into planters at different points on the Boundary Estate.
