Hello all wonderful yarn crafters for WARM TREES 19! How is your knitting and crochet work going? Look at the photo of four scarves - a tulip garden in the making! It's a combination of knitting for the stalks and the background and applique felt for the tulips. Our Tulip Workshops are coming up on 4 May and on 11 May between 10.00am and 12.00noon in the Terrace Room. And don't forget the Knitters morning tea on 15 June between 10.00 and 12.00noon in the Terrace Room. Please let me know if you are attending.

Three Zigzag Gardens launched!

The first three Zigzag Gardens in the Central Valley of the Arboretum were launched on 28 March, having been planted last December. They are a stunning example of how wonderful this Valley will look when all the Zigzag Gardens are complete.


Warm up for Warm Trees 2019!

The weather is starting to get cooler and it will soon be time for daylight saving to end so more time to knit and crochet in the evenings. In July we will make the National Arboretum even more spectacular than it already is and our efforts also go towards helping charities once the display is over. Our diplomatic partner for 2019 is the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Our themes for this year will be colourful tulips and amazing bicycles. And the theme colour for the scarves will be orange (which is the royal colour for the Netherlands).
