Jobs for the garden this month

By the Head Gardener




What a difference a couple of weeks makes!

The grass area here at the Walled Garden has been levelled and prepared and the grass has already begun the show through. You wouldn’t believe that there were ever big muddy wheel ruts and large areas of wet soggy mud now.

The hillock where our residing gypsy caravan stands has begun to grow small seedlings on it which will create our wild flower meadow.

Whilst these have been growing the gardening team have been busy putting the planting into the Oriental Garden and the new river bed area which is now really starting to take shape.

We are busy planting out new plants into the garden to fill up the beds ready for the warmer weather and the Summer season.

The grass is now being cut more regularly, when the rain holds off, and the edges are being trimmed and tidied to keep us looking at our best.

Our plants are beginning to make their way to the selling area and we are very excited to be producing and propagating some of our own plants.

Happy gardening!
