Lots of watering cans followed by a box of fudge

9 May

Some of the lovely plants on sale at Wordsworth House shop

April was a dreich month and the showers stayed away. So far May’s been brighter but still not a great deal of rain, so the team have been busy with their watering cans, tending our shop’s wonderful array of plants.

To say thank you, Bruce, the retail supervisor, brought Amanda some fudge – she almost bit his hand off. She says gardening is hungry work! I can vouch for that – I’ve just seen her raking a trailer load of gravel kindly supplied by countryside rangers Paulownia and Dandelion. (Amanda’s terrible with human names so she often calls people after plants – you can probably guess what they’re really called.)

The team have also been busy potting on, and our Georgian-style cold frames are now full to bursting. All we need is some warm weather to plant everything out.
