Get in the garden

Winter is a busy time in the garden as the team continue with hedge cutting, weeding and preparing borders. Winter is the perfect time for our gardeners to plan ahead and prepare the garden for the coming year. Cuttings will be taken to help propagate new plants which will either go back into the garden next year or will be available to buy from our plant sales.
