Have a gander at these!

Have a gander at these!
Dale and Paul.
Tuesday 31st May 2011 by C. Freeman

The groundsmen at Brooke Weston are cultivating 3,500 nibble-proof plants to go into the flowerbeds. In previous years gaggles of geese have developed a taste for our horticultural display and so Paul Twamley and Dale Sharkey are going to plant marigolds, geraniums and begonias which are proven to be not so beak-coming to our two legged friends!

The plants will go in at the start of this term to provide a splash of colour and update the current display of winter flowering pansies. Mr Twamley said: ‘We have found from experience that the birds eat bizzy lizzies so these should be more geese-proof! We have grown them on from little plugs and they should take about two and a half days to plant.’
