Spreading your wings…. Volunteer opportunities at historic venue

Kicking your heels post lockdown? Recently graduated or still on furlough?

The Gardens have always been dependent on a fantastic band of happy and hardworking volunteers. Lockdown has been hard on many of them who are itching to come back to enjoy the friendship and the beauty of the site. It’s lovely to welcome many back, but others for various reasons cannot comeback, yet.

We are learning what we can do post lockdown – there are operational changes and we are having to rethink a lot of the ways we provide services and activities. This means we need to reach out for more volunteers too.

Perhaps you’re looking to stretch your experiences for your cv or looking for another way to ‘give back’.

Currently we have new opportunities for volunteers to help our historic Gardens Charity and to accumulate a range of visitor experience and front of house skills.

Our front of house entry sales and small shop needs happy, confident ‘welcomers’ 5 days a week.

We hope too, to be extending some of our family activities and outdoor evening entertainment when we re-allowed.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to some training and either a regular day each week/fortnight or are flexible over the summer for 5 days or more

Later in the season there may also be Gardening opportunities.

Induction/Exploring Mornings for those interested in finding out more

Tuesday 7th July and Saturday 11th July, 11 am -12.30am

If you are interested please fill in the expression of interest form online first,if at all possible.,,and we look forward to answering your questions and showing you whats involved  on the induction days

(online expression of interest form:  https://forms.gle/iGvKqk6b2oE6UTRW7)

July Tips from the Head Gardener

Summer’s progressing 

Our sense of time is a bit out of alignment these days –  lockdown has meant that many of us have been looking inwards and at our gardens. We’ve been noticing change and growth perhaps more acutely than ever before. But even so .. we lockdown and the beginning of spring and now summer is well on its way… how did that happen?

Here in the garden at the start of the month we are busy finishing the summer bedding displays. Risk of frost is surely passed and the summer plants that went in a few weeks ago have established and are flowering. It is really important though to water these temporary residents if rainfall is lacking. They won’t put on their best show if they are struggling to survive and desperately thirsty.

We have all rediscovered our love of hanging baskets this year. All kinds of improvised and hand nurtured baskets and containers are seen around peoples front  doors and on balconies. Now, just because you can go out, don’t neglect their love and care. Any reserves of goodness in the compost, or within the plants themselves, are being used up for growing and flowering. A regular feed with some water soluble fertiliser will ensure your baskets keep looking vibrant. You’ll  need to water your baskets everyday by now as the sun dries out the compost very quickly. So feeding them while watering is no extra work for you.

‘Dead heading’

Flowers, just like bird song, are not there to please our eyes – or ears. The plant produces flowers as part of its main job – to reproduce itself for next year. It is merely a happy side effect that we humans like the look of flowers. So, armed with that knowledge we can intervene and try to help the plant produce more flowers for our benefit.. Once a plant has flowered and set seed it’s job is complete, so will relax …and die back. The answer for us humans is to fool the plant by removing all the old flower heads and it will keep on trying to reproduce by pushing out lots more lovely flowers.

A time of plenty in the Veg. plot

In the vegetable patch you can now start to reap the benefits of all the extra time you’ve been able to put in over the last few months by harvesting some of the crops you have been caring for.

Items such as salad leaves, peas and beans should be ready to eat and weeding around the vegetables becomes easier. With the heat of the sun any small weeds can be hoed off and will frazzle and die. Happy eating and keep growing your own food… Hyper local is good!
