An awesome evening of GoodGym Gardening in Buccleuch Gardens Richmond, in Two Acts.

‘’Act One ‘’ A determined focus on an array of tasks at The Three Pigeons Plot with a fast and furious 25mins resulting in:

1.  Litter picked.
  1. Weeds around the riverside railings and lamp- post annihilated.
  2. Leaves around the Plot and adjacent parking spaces swept and composted.
  3. Gravel area precision weeded. ‘’Act Two’’

A blitzkrieg approach at The Arcade Rockery and Compost Heap, working against the clock and somehow managing to accomplish one hell of a lot :

  1. Compost heap completely turned (revealing fabulous compost for future use)
    1. Lawn border raked and weeded,
    2. Stachys (lambs ears) relocated and watered-into newly weeded rockery.

‘’Finale’’ A group photo in the Arcade Compost Heap (undignified but original) followed by a victory run back to the Tap Tavern. Congratulations to Lucy on getting stuck right in to her first GoodGym session.
