The Gardens are looking lush – so why not come and see for yourself on Sunday 21 May? The Handkerchief Tree (Davidia involucrata) is flowering beautifully this year – a particular joy as we thought we might have lost it to drought a few years ago. The blossom is still on the cherry and apple trees and the really tall crab apple by the Archive building has flowers up into the sky! In the walled kitchen garden the cammassia are in flower, the alliums are coming and we have our first produce to pick and sell.
This week we got a lot of work done, as well as enjoying the sunshine – starting a new wildflower feature in the kitchen garden; making good the work on the rill in the Glade; and lots of weeding.
