29th March 2020

The start of Summertime and the warm weather had lulled me into thinking winter was over. Yesterday’s icy blasts have
brought me back to reality and I am keeping my fingers crossed for the sweet peas and onions that were planted out
last week.?? I am also mindful of the damage that can be done by putting a fork into a bed before the plants are
visible- patience is a definite virtue in a gardener.

Both yellow and red Cornus have had a hard prune and Delphinium and Paeonia are being staked whilst they are still
small and malleable. The Clematis are growing well after their March prune and getting tied in as they grow. A little
attention now pays huge dividends.

The daffodils are looking magnificent and there is a video on our Facebook page if you would like to see them.

One of the ewes gave birth to twins last week and the white Swans seem to be settled on the Moat. The Heron is a daily
visitor and the music from “Jaws” should be playing as the dastardly Cormorant swims around looking for fish.

Stay healthy and good gardening,
Lynda Tucker.
