With baking hot temperatures and clear blue skies we've been enjoying an early start to summer. Early morning or evening watering is a good idea, avoid daytime watering and remember to water only the soil and not the leaves. Enjoy the sunshine.
The sun may be shining but the temperatures are low - cover up tender plants and seedlings with fleece until the bise has dropped and the temperatures have risen.
The sky is blue, the sun is shining and the blossoms are out in all their glory - such a tremendous start to the year. We are excited to start our courses and garden tours and hope to have some of you join us this year.
Well winter is certainly upon us; heavy snow, high winds and freezing temperatures remind us that the best place to be is inside. Curl up with a good gardening book or seed catalogue and start to make a list of all the wonderful things you'd like to do this year in your garden.
Holidays and snowy days are fast approaching so we will hibernate for the winter season. We'll be busy planning new courses and new garden visits for 2017 during this season and will be back in the spring ready to begin a new year in the garden.
We've been busy running courses this autumn and happily enjoying the mild weather. Lots to learn and lots to keep busy with in the garden.
We are looking forward to a busy autumn with new garden plans, winter vegetable sowing and perhaps some new structural ideas for the garden. What are you looking forward to?
We hope you are busy in your garden this summer but also taking the time to enjoy the fruits of your hard work. New courses for the Autumn will be posted on the website at the end of August, in the meantime keep up with the weeding and enjoy!
We have many firm favourites return this year along with new courses and garden visits. See our list of courses here.
Following a tremendous start to our new series of workshops and master classes we are taking our annual winter break. Course will resume after Easter when most of the snow has melted and the mind is focussed on the garden again. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and look forward to having you join us in 2016.
