IN THE GARDEN

I couldn’t be more excited, because not only is the weather bound to improve but there is so much to look forward to here with changes taking place on a daily basis in and around the garden. Big leaf rhododendrons showing off their fantastic colour exhibition, the deciduous trees will soon display their leaves again, the deciduous azaleas are only a few weeks away, the plant sales area is soon to be refilled with many different varieties opening on the 16th September, and of course not to mention the fishing on my days off! Have I said that I love Spring ?!

My Tiger den down stairs has been taken over by brown and blue plant labels for rhododendron and tree species and they will soon be positioned around the garden. Won’t that make a difference! A massive thank you to James Holloway for all of your time, patience and self-teaching of the label machine - this is a weight off my shoulders for sure. The next challenge is to tie Maurie down, and for him to tell us where they all live while we’re on a roll. I have sown our new rhodo seeds that arrived a few months ago, so now it’s just the waiting game to see what decides to germinate and how many we might be lucky enough to grow.
