The garden

Summer is nearly here and the garden is humming with activity as pollinators flit from one flower to another.

After a slow start the garden is now in full swing. Bees and butterflies can be found throughout the Trerice garden but the blue and white border is a particular hive of activity. New flowers bloom every day and the fragrant smells and beautiful colours make the blue and white border a definite highlight this May and June.

The potager has started supplying the food and beverage team with herbs and veggies. Lettuces and radishes were part of the first harvest taken to the barn restaurant. A frame for beans and sweet peas was built by the Thursday team mid-May and we can’t wait till these start winding through the willow.

Regular visitors may have noticed developments in the newly acquired field over the spring. From early June until September this field will be open with a new labyrinth cut into the grass. While we give it a few finishing touches (taming the nettles is a priority!) it’s great to watch the team develop this new feature.
