June In The Garden
There’s so much to enjoy (and do!!) in the garden this month. The spring flowering bulbs have been tidied up to make room for the full-bodied summer perennials and I am improving the supports and staking using branches trimmed from the espaliered pear trees in the factory garden and the pliable off cuts of silver birch gathered back in February. The use of sustainable, natural materials not only looks good but is a fantastic way to reduce our carbon footprint and use of plastics in the garden.
We've had very little rain for most of May and June, so it's watering cans at the ready... it's time consuming but so worthwhile when we can harvest strawberries in June.
