Winter in the UK is either mild and damp, or cold and windy - and who would want to be outside as a gardener at this time of year - well Saul and Lucy for one, as this time of year is some of the busiest in all the 12 months. While the garden may be slumbering, Head Gardeners and their teams are beavering away on major jobs, garden renovations, cleaning and tidying the years clutter and making plans for 2024. So join us every week to see what we're up to in the cold months in our work and home gardens.
One of the drawbacks of any holiday is returning home, and with Lucy its no different as the combined Time zone difference and temperature shock means she taking a little time to recover. So Saul takes the opportunity to bring the listeners to Stonelands where the mercury bottoms out at -4C, so work is constrained to those areas of the garden where a deep frost isn't too prevalent. Rose pruning is the main the aim while he waits for the thaw, but expect a number of warm cups of tea, that is until the Devon Air Ambulance drops in!
