Thanks to our lovely supporters we have hit, and exceeded, our target to ensure we can buy our spring bulbs next year!
Whoopee! That really is a great relief to our gardeners, who are always thinking seasons and seasons ahead.
Your help now, and in the future, really will make a difference to the Gardens’ survival.
Did you know it costs over £550 per day – every day of the year – to keep the Gardens running smoothly, so knowing our plant purchases for next year are safe really helps. Thanks again.
The Gardeners have just taken delivery of the summer bedding for this year- from our excellent local professional supplier Baginton’s.
The cosmos, zinnia, salvia, pelargoniums etc are all looking bright and full of vigour – our visitors may have missed Spring – lets hope Summer is not lost.
Without our regular volunteers it will take a little longer for these to go in, though. We also lost all our nursery and propagation spaces 18 months ago when the hotel decided it wanted to nullify a license agreement – so the plants are distributed around in tiny space and we have nowhere to propagate many of our own plants these days 🙁
Looking back and looking forward:
