The Growing Season Has Started
There is a great flush of growth here in the walled gardens and in the woodlands. A major cleanup has started on the herbaceous border, digging out those hooligan perennial weeds that always find their way into the border. This will be followed by staking. Some seeds are sown in the glasshouses and germination has begun. In the woods Celandines are in flower and some trees are breaking bud.
Also in the walled gardens preparations are taking place for the Family Fun day and Easter Egg Hunt which is taking place on Easter Sunday 8th April., marquees have to go up. Our ground preparations for tree planting are almost complete tree planting next week. Delighted to say that our red Squirrels are very active at the moment, tried to get a picture but they are way more difficult than rabbits.
