Winter work at the Gardens is great when the weather allows for it. Last week it was just too wet. This week was cold, but we got a lot done. Ann, Valerie and Sue tidied the border by the gate, while Peter and Ann tidied around the top of the Italian garden. Sam and Martin found and dug up old estate fencing. Tony, Keith, Clare and Steph put deer proof fencing around newly planted trees. Jane improved the cornus border.  Sue and Jacqueline extended the planting in the Japanese garden. Steven and Lesley took down interpretative boards for winter cleaning.

Teams working on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays have also been achieving a lot, in particular progressing the work to put in a new walk in the lime wood.

So visitors in 2021 will have lots of new features to enjoy.
