Landscape gardener apprentice at Park Wood Country Park and Sports Club

Category: Self-trained gardener

My name is Rose Lee and I am currently a landscape gardener apprentice at the Park Wood Country Park and Sports Club in Ryde, Isle of Wight. This blog gives an insight into my job experiences and what I have learned about horticulture and how I plan to further my career in the horticulture industry.

The above image is of the Parks wood Country Park Sports Club Community Garden which was created by the gardener apprentices in the last month. The equipment and materials that were used include: flower pots, soil and compost, secateurs, shovel, trug, rake and potting compost.

The main goal of the garden was to help the new members of the society find an enjoyable place to meet and socialize. The

With the volunteers the goal was also to get a well-tended garden ready to be show off in the October and November show.

Here are some other images that I captured:

Here is an image of the main part of the garden

This is a picture of one of the planters.

The pots along the side of the fence are now looking great with their colorful flower.

The old flowers on the edge of the garden bed have all been pruned back and they make a great display.

Here is a view of all the pot planters that have been filled.

I had fun with all the pots and I am looking forward to seeing how they turn out when it is finished.

This is an example of a planter I will be filling soon.

Here is a picture of one of the climbers in the garden.

The climbers look great with their autumn colours.

The pumpkin flowers have all dropped down.

Now it is time for me to do something with the flowers that are left.

I hope the photo captions are clear, if they are not please don't hesitate to ask.

Our new reception team made their grand debut at the Hawstead Open Day on the 6th August. Here is a snapshot of some of the team working hard to make the event run smoothly for everyone.

Here are some photos from a fantastic children’s fun activity. The children found out more about butterflies and all the wildlife they may find in our park.

Here are some of the exhibitors at the event. We would like to thank everyone who made the show so much fun and appreciated for all their hard work.

Here are some examples of the work our Gardener Apprentices did with the trees in the Park. As well as working on one tree we also worked on 20 of them. This was a great opportunity for us to practice and get our hands dirty.

Here are some pictures of the park all the way through the summer.

On the grass verges around the park are all the plantings of summer annuals. This was all created by the plants chosen by the volunteers. These plants are great for attracting butterflies to the park as well as providing colour throughout the summer.

Here is a view of a lot of the woody plants in the park. They are a great addition to the park and they also provide habitats for the wildlife.

Many of the plantings around the park have looked great all the way through the summer.

Here is an example of a tree that is all in leaf and this year we had fantastic fall colour.

Here are some images of some of the wildflowers that were seen all the way through the summer.

You can find lots of autumn colour if you know where to look.

Even though we have not yet had the very best summer the park is starting to look good. As well as all the planting there is now a lot of weed control on the grass verges. All of this has been done by the volunteers working with the park.

Here are some examples of the work done.

All of the rest of the week’s work will be put into the best possible shape ready for the winter.

The adventure of 2017 will begin to unfold and I am looking forward to what is in store for the horticulture industry in this great country of ours.

Welcome to the blog where you can see more about me and get the latest updates from my life on the Isle of Wight.

With the rain and hail of the last few days the day lilies looked a little sorry for themselves. It was a really grey day today so there wasn't much light for the day lilies to bask in.

Here are some pictures of the day lilies when it was too wet and grey for them to get a full sunlight day.

Here are some of the flowers that were planted in a large round bed by the Country Park Sports Club. They were all planted by the Garden Club. There was a crew of gardeners present at the time of planting to do the weeding, watering and keeping an eye out for snails and slugs.

It was a busy weekend at the Island Way Fruit Show. This is the start of the fruit fairs for this year. Many of the shows have been going for many years and they bring in visitors and help the local businesses.

Here are some of the pictures I took at the show on Saturday. You can see the fruit stalls, restaurant and of course the Café Culture food fair. I also took lots of pictures of the grandstand of the County Show as well as the Donkey Riding.

This is a great opportunity to meet lots of growers, tourists and local residents.
