May

Following the success of our Blossom Day at the start of the month, we have reopened our cafe in the glasshouses on a Thursday, and are now selling hot and cold drinks as well as home made cakes and treats, all made within the garden. 

Our plant sales area continues to grow, with the addition of two new stands by the cafe, all of which can be bought, and offer a flavour of the walled garden to take home and plant in your own green space.

Meantime in the garden we have all been very busy. lots of propagation and potting up of plants for plant sales, mowing of lawns, digging of beds, but with recent rain and now warmer days, weeds are one of our main focuses now that we have the vegetable beds and allotment projects all planted up.

We spend a lot of time through the summer weeding, but it can be a sociable job, with us working in teams on specific areas to make them look tidy, much chatter and enjoyment is had by all in the process. We hope that as people come to visit that the fruits of our labour is enjoyed and make a super backdrop to a walk or day out.
