What a beautiful day it was, working at the Gardens and welcoming a few more late season visitors.
We have old maps of the walks in the lime wood. But the trees are way beyond restoring them to pleached hedges, such as you find at Sissinghurst or the Courts Garden; and tower so magnificently that we wouldn’t want to reduce their height. What we can do, though, is put in paths so visitors can dally there and enjoy the daffodils in the spring.
It was also a day for more mulching of roses and pruning of trees; planting; and a first go at leaf raking. There will be many more of those.
