April has sprung

The weather through April has been mainly dry, which has allowed us to get on with lots of work in the garden. Over the course of the month, our new plant sales area just inside the side gate has been put together and been filled with lots of plants that we have propagated over the last 3 or 4 months. After a period of being closed we are also looking at reopening the cafe, with its opening coinciding with the Blossom day that we will be hosting on May 8th. The cafe will have a new feel to it this year and be a shop from for yet more plants and creations from the walled garden, don’t forget to stop by, sit back and relax over a cuppa and piece of home made cake.

Meantime in the rest of the glass houses plants have started to burst into life, seeds have been sown and germination has started which is hugely exciting. Our vegetable beds have all been prepared and have a lattice of wood chip paths to make their access easier as we grow vegetables, lots of which we hope to sell in our plant sales area. 

Apple blossom has also started to emerge, which is really lifting the look of the garden and making it feel most spring like. We hope that now we are open weekdays that we have a good number of visitors pop past and enjoy the fruits of everybody’s hard work in maintaining the garden, so that it is a jewel in the middle of the woods.
