New gardener tests the soil

20 12 2012

Bored of just mowing and watering grass, the Grounds, Utility, Maintenance & Preparation team, or GRUMP for short, started testing the soil for growing palm trees around the base.

It is yet to be determined if the tree species shown will be chosen, but the initial nitrogen tests look good, apparently.  When questioned about the future prospects of the trees planted, Alfy Bootleberry, ex-green keeper at St Andrews Golf Course and head of the Flora Initiative, simply said “well it ain’t dead yet, boss”.
