The garden team have been working overtime (2 mornings a week instead of usual 1) for a few weeks now, to ensure the gardens are looking as good as possible.
In addition much work has gone at home to provide another very full Plant Sales table on Sunday. Hoping visitors to the Open Day for the National Garden Scheme on 26 June will enjoy all that’s on offer and the wildlife wont take cover and hide!
