Tweets today from Richard Ian Brown (RBGE)

" Great way to end a wild week of crazy weather with the opening of our newly rebuilt recycled plastic ‘wood’ bridge @TheBotanics #rockgarden . A labour of love for Scott Cook over the past few months so it was only fitting he cut the ‘ribbon’ #rbgehort #recycle #bridges "



Fun ribbon cutting  for #ScottCook after  his efforts  on the  new  bridge - SRGC folks  multi-talented, for  sure !

"Some images from the build. The old bridge was 20+ yrs old & a little tired, but with good foundations! The surrounding plantings will be developed these coming months to complement the new bridge."

Thanks  to Richard Ian Brown for tweeting the  photos!

From Sunday 1st March,  RBGE will be open daily from 10am-6pm. "That means you get an extra hour to marvel at the annual flowering spectacle in the Alpine House!"

From President Julia Corden :

The Backyard at The RBG Edinburgh amazing amount of back up plants looking great. Plus the lovely new alpine house there ready to start filling with plants!!"   This  new glasshouse which is a bequest from Margaret Stevenson who was a garden guide @TheBotanics and sadly passed away last year

RBGE is  recruiting!

Their  current vacancies include:

Seedling
 Seasonal Visitor Welcome Team Member

 Horticulturist (various positions)

 Head of Major Gifts

 Short Course Programme Coordinator

 Publishing Assistant

Apply now at: http://ow.ly/cQ0450E3tGE


I was rather  shocked to  read that  while   Horticulturalists start on a salary of £20413 ,  the "head of Major  Gifts" - hired on a 7 year  contract to help fundraise, is offered £42k -£44k perv annum.  Well I suppose  if  that person brings in funds of  several  million  pounds that might seem fair,  but  it  speaks volumes about the value  given to the  people  who actually  grow the  plants!  ::) :P
