My friend and I have been looking after the garden area at Parkhill Court for many years. We have planted bulbs, annual flowers in pots and in borders which has been a lot of manual work but we and the other tenants have enjoyed the bright and beautiful garden. My friend is no longer able to help and I am now 82 years old. To reduce my workload I would like to change over from annuals to perennial plants and shrubs, mainly in tubs and still retain a bright attractive garden for all to enjoy when looking out of their flat windows or sitting out in the summertime having a chat and a cup of tea with others.
