As is new recruit, Katie Price.

Meanwhile Kit is busy with those bare bones of Bog Garden shown above.

Putting the finishing touches on, and giving it a good water.

The results spectacular as ever.

Elsewhere, planting is progressing. Jane Leeds and Val Lee planting up the scree.

While time is also taken for discussion and reflection on what looks best and what is next.

Rod Leeds, Kit and Tim having healthy debate on the relative merits of the view over the top of the exhibit.

As can be seen, you have to consider your backdrop as well as the exhibit itself. Here Peter Beales Roses were beginning to make a bit of a distraction and the debate was whether to use more trees to screen them out.

Of course it's not all frenetic activity.

Pam is fantastic with her timing for getting the kettle on for tea.

Time is taken to survey and discuss the effects thus far achieved.

Before getting on with the chores.

Which everyone gets a turn at doing.

Which keeps us all in very fine spirits.

While at the same time allowing the master trough planter to get on with the serious stuff.

Saturday 19th and still plenty to do.

More of the same the next day. Here Jane and Val putting the finishing touches on a lightweight trough ready to be lifted into position.

Saturday 19th and still plenty to do.

Saturday, also means that we see more of Ray as he is now working on the outside edges of the woodland.

Labelling is quite a task as we never really know what's going to be used until we see how ready it is on the day and how it fits in with everything else.

Here Judy Mallick getting to grips with the PC and labelling machine.
