Not an easy job to tackle at any time but with the threat of frost last week Jim had to set to and get cutting the Gunnera on the island. It is a fierce plant with really sharp prickles on their stalks so care has to be taken not to get too scratched!
A brilliant job well done and the Gunnera ‘buds’ will now be safe from the frost for the winter. Sadly, though Jim , who had pulled the boat up the bank and cleaned it all out had to get it out again and row back as he’d left his hat on the island!!
