Watering Tubs and Trees in a dry April

On Sunday 18th April, the FoRP volunteer taskforce were out watering and weeding our tubs and the many new trees in the park in what has been a very dry April. In particular, we have had two new cherry trees planted which really needed hydrating, as they are just coming into bud. These trees, near Roseburn Crescent, were funded by a grant from the Murrayfield DAFs cricket club and form part of the Ian Shiels memorial legacy.

The log bench also got a fresh coat of finishing oil, as the bark is beginning to shed; protecting what was underneath from the elements will help in securing its longevity.
