After a very changeable (and soggy) August,
September has brought calm and warm weather with it. The gardens are
full of trees laden with fruit. The large pear trees are dropping their
fruit, along with apple, crab apple, Elderberries and our new urban
orchard trees have their first few Medlars and Green Gages. We still
have lots of colour in the garden with the sunflowers, black eyed susans
and ubiquitous Cosmos.
Excitingly we've had our first resident move into
our bog garden. This frog was enjoying his/her new home amongst the bog
plants. We also welcome back a slow worm in our compost bins. It was
making a quick exit so hopefully it was not too disturbed.
Wednesday 17th September Session
We will be having a shortened session on
Wednesday 17th due to a corporate event. We will finish at
approximatley 12.30. We will be back to normal the following week.

are digging 2 new beds where the willow arch used to be. We hope to
make another sensory bed area which has been so successful. The bog
garden interpretation board is now complete and looks fantastic. We
hope to cut down some willow for new fencing and other projects going
into the winter.
