Physic Garden benefits from state of the art pruning ladder
Volunteers at Petersfield Physics Garden were amazed when our gardener, John Wade-Palmer, arrived with his new state-of-the-art tripod ladder, to prune and tidy the damson.
The ladder, a Niwacki, is made in Japan and has been in use for many years to deal with bamboo cutting and olive tree pruning, as well as orchard use. Its incredibly stable and versatile design makes pruning the trees in the Physic Garden much safer than with our conventional ladders. Being hollow aluminium, the ladder is light to carry around and packs down into a small space.
Our team of garden volunteers will be queueing up to have a turn on it!
