A real achievement

The Victorian glasshouse in the kitchen garden was rebuilt last year with the help of staff and volunteers and is an unmissable sight.

Gardening tips

  • Thin out your carrots in the evening to stop carrot fly
  • Cut off the heads of parsley that are going to seed because of weather
  • Only cut rhubarb until the end of June
  • Weeds are growing fast because of wet weather, deal with them promptly
  • Pick your first strawberries before the birds can feast on them
