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.
Has August in 2023 been one of the lushest for many a year, it certainly feels like it. Weeds are on steroids, fruit and veggies are swelling and ripening in unbelievable quantity , and planting, dividing and propagating our precious plants has been a joy. Lucy and Saul have been revelling in all these things and more - as they bulk up their stocks of plants for overwintering taking as many cuttings as they can.
