Well we are nearly back in the game for another season – this is our 66th year open to the public. The winter has been spent working in the garden getting all the infrastructure ready. Basically doing all the dirty, messy or behind the scenes work that can’t happen whilst we are open!
We’ve had to remove most of our lovely Box hedging as the box blight has now got the best of it. Wooden fencing has gone in for the interim until we can re-grow a replacement but as any gardener knows that takes time and patience… perhaps a lovely miniature hedge will be ready for some other new year!
