Letters from the garden
Ok we have celebrated Mothers Day already and we are 3 weeks into March, I bet the gardens are springing up lovely. With all the flowers and tubs done for Mothers Day weekend, it makes you impatient for the garden to spring to life.
We are still doing clearance and tidy ups for gardens getting ready for the season ahead, with compost and mulch being dug into beds and new beds being built then it’s just the plant shopping, which is my favourite part of the job, and it’s great at the moment you have all these lovely shrubs and herbaceous all ready and preened to perform alongside the bedding which is already starting.
Cutting has started and we are bouncing between frosts for this and planting and also a lot of roof cleaning and fencing is happening, with an abundance of lawn care being asked for we really have our work cut out for us – that was good one!
If you anything done in the garden soft or hard we can help make it happen, and thank you to everyone who is already calling and booked in.
Don’t forget to check the websites out for the Gardening and the Landscape teams, also the gallery for the landscapes is a good way to spend your tea break.
Bulb watch: so far Snowdrops in abundance, Daffs and crocus all bright and colourful.
