11th JANUARY 2016
Winter is a busy, busy time in the gardens here. So far this week we have been planning the planting for the kitchen garden - Bob, our kitchen gardener, has been through the Dobies catalogue and made a wish list of all the goodies he would like. (NB congratulations to Dobies who have just been awarded the accolade of 'Best Mail Order Supplier for Fruit and Vegetable plants' from Which! Gardening).
In the office we have just finalised our 2017 leaflet so we should have the finished copies delivered next week ready to give out at Excursions (see our Group Information page for details).
Throughout the rest of the garden Keith and Zena are leading the team to plant 30,000 bulbs ready for the Tulip Festival as well as doing a lot of work in new/reshaped flower beds and Clive and Toby have been busy planning and making a new path - you can see it is coming along nicely below.

We wish all our visitors and followers a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year and hope to see many of you in the gardens again when we re-open in April.
