We are really beginning to work hard on the final push to get the gardens looking lovely for opening on the 16/17th May. The really exciting change is the Bamboo bed – (new names  for this area currently under discussion) The bamboo has mostly been dug out, with a bit of help from a digger, but the soil needed to be sifted thoroughly, by hand to make sure no root remains, this has taken a very long time and it is with much excitement that at the end of last week the bed was fully planted. So if you are reading this and have visited the gardens before you will definitely notice a huge change.

To me the garden looks so different and I am excited to hear the comments from new and previous visitors alike. All details of our open weekend are on our gardens page.
