Spring 2022 has arrived and a new chapter in our gardening lives has started as bulbs, early blossom and the early tufts of seedlings and herbaceous perennials speak of the year ahead. As days in spring seem to tumble one after another in an ever-accelerating list of garden jobs, plantings and hum of mowers - it's a great time to shake off the winter slumber and start to engage with the natural world around us, enjoying the spectacles of spring that lie within. As ever, Saul and Lucy will bring you their waffled musings and exciting revelations as this most joyous of seasons unfolds!
Head Gardeners Saul and Lucy have left the relative comfort of their own gardens to travel to Hampshire to spend three days at Beaulieu, not only the venue for the National Motor Museum but also venue of BBC Gardeners World Spring Fair and the permanent setting for both the Victorian Flower Gardens and a beautiful Walled Vegetable Garden. The pair have been leading tours of the gardens all week with Kelvin and Dan from the gardening staff, and have enjoyed chatting away to the visiting public and giving them all sorts of gardening advice.
