New in the garden – a Winter update

Well, look at us! Brand new filled metal structures – Gabion planters – are appearing. And gravel is starting to be laid in the spaces between them. They’re all part of new plans for the garden.

Meanwhile, nature is doing its thing. We’ve had beautiful frosty flowers and popping up in the piles of earth by the new works, tough little potato plants!

Look out here and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more news on what’s next.
