The beautiful garden at Stationers' Hall has been rather ravaged by the building works. It has been dug up by archaeologists, used as a storage depot by the Company and the builders, and generally trampled as huge bits of machinery and supplies have been moved through it. But its rescue has started!
As the work began the much loved Camellia was surrounded by mayhem but looking glorious. the gardeners began by clearing away leaves, weeds and building detritus.
Gradually order began to be restored and by day two the bed around the large plane tree was looking much better and
by the end of the day, although it was obvious that there is still a huge amount to do, the lines of the garden and some of the plants which we all recognise from before the works started were starting to show again.
