Summer days are here again - sipping G&T on the terrace, lounging in our pools and holidays in the Algarve!? You must be kidding, for Head Gardeners Lucy and Saul it's full-on gardening, as our plots and patches reach the zenith of there horticultural output. This is the season when we really see the results of all those labours over the previous 6 months - colour, texture, scent and flavour all reach their crescendo as the garden provides us with the visual and edible treats that we work so hard for. Enjoy theses long days and wallow in the best gardening has to offer.
The National Garden Scheme has been supporting garden owners since 1927 to open the gardens for charity, with the proceeds from the entries, plan sales and refreshment benefitting many worthy charities that the NGS supports. If you want to show your garden to the public whether a large garden like Stonelands or a small personal garden, allotment, community garden or horticultural project the the National Garden Scheme (as well as various other schemes and charities) then listen in as Saul describes the whys, how's, when's and what's of the process, and you can also go to the NGS website to learn more to.
