Planting around the Juniper Green monument on the corner of Belmont Road and Baberton Avenue has been underway in the last few weeks by pupils and teachers at Juniper Green Primary School. The planting has been supervised by Mrs Nan Henderson who has displayed both her gardening skill and her expertise as a retired teacher in re-organising this small area of greenery in our village. The children have planted junipers, bulbs and rosa rugosa in an effort to improve the look of the site especially in Spring time.
A small crowd gathered around the monument earlier this week to applaud the efforts of all the gardeners as they put the final touches to their creation. A rowan tree was planted in memory of the work of the Juniper Green Village Association and recent JGVA members Barbara Badger, George Dickson and Eric White were on hand to put the tree into its place.
Do take a look next time you are passing the corner of Belmont Road and Baberton Avenue and help us keep the area as an oasis in our urban life.
