The roses in Walpole Park's walled garden are being removed and replanted.

It's part of the restoration of Pitzhanger Manor and a team of NVQ1 horticulture students from Capel Manor College are replanting the flowers in Lammas Park and Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College’s garden.

The empty flower beds will be filled with wild flowers which should be in bloom in summer.

The rose bushes are being moved now to avoid it being too warm and stressful on the plants. It should also mean they will still bloom this year.

Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport and environment, said:

“The transformation of Walpole Park began in August 2013 and since then the park has had a brand new children’s playground and a newly restored fountain and Rustic Bridge on the Serpentine Lake. I can’t wait for the weather to improve so that residents and visitors to the area can really enjoy all the improvements for themselves.”

The park’s Walled Garden has been restored; paths have been widened and re-surfaced throughout with the aim of Walpole being returned to the Regency glory days of its creator, Sir John Soane.
