Bedding plants. Gardening gloves. A sunny afternoon. A trowel. And a flask of hot tea.
Just the perfect components for a spot of bi-annual bedding action.
Earlier this week, some of the ladies (and Oli) from Fruit Towers popped down to Holland Park to volunteer their green fingers to help plant the thousands of plants and bulbs that need planting now so as to be ready for spring.
Everyone got stuck in with their trowels though planting in a straight line is apparently not as easy as it looks.
Despite a few wiggly rows of golden yellows, things looked much neater when they left.
The team at Holland Park are always keen for a hand with gardening, so if you fancy getting involved, just drop Head Gardener Marcus a line here
