The restoration of the steps was completed this week – and aren’t they fantastic? They are a joy to walk down – no longer a hazard! The stonemasons from Herringbone Restoration, employed by Landsec, are due to create a ‘before, during and after’ sequence of photos, which we will share once available. Their work shows how to restore the Italian garden and we will now give thought to what restoration project we move onto!
This week we busied ourselves clearing long grass, deadheading and watering. And picking … if those courgettes, patty pans and beans aren’t picked the plants won’t carry on producing lovely veg. And the late summer raspberries are now on stream, so jamming is underway!
