Ep. 136 - Learning on the job is so rewarding, and that's exactly what Lucy's done this week as she tells Saul how she's had help to solved three mysteries in the Hall's gardens
Spring 2022 has arrived and a new chapter in our gardening lives has started as bulbs, early blossom and the early tufts of seedlings and herbaceous perennials speak of the year ahead. As days in spring seem to tumble one after another in an ever-accelerating list of garden jobs, plantings and hum of mowers - it's a great time to shake off the winter slumber and start to engage with the natural world around us, enjoying the spectacles of spring that lie within. As ever, Saul and Lucy will bring you their waffled musings and exciting revelations as this most joyous of seasons unfolds!
Unusual yew hedge dieback, bluebell conundrums and box moth developments - it's all in a week's work for the modern Head Gardener! Saul listens on as Lucy tells him how, with a little help from her friends, she's solved three mysteries at the Hall this week. As experienced as we might be, it still gives us a buzz to research and discover the latest findings in the horticultural world. Talking of worlds, Saul and Lucy are also incredibly excited to be visiting the world famous Chelsea Flower Show early next week - it's time to scrub down and spruce up!
