Most gardens have a bit of sculpture among the plants. It could be a thoughtfully-placed statue, an interesting urn, even an unfashionable gnome, but it’s there somewhere, if you look closely.
The moles are on the move, and that’s bad news for anyone who takes pride in their lawn.
It’s been a bit of a short spring this year; all that ice and snow took its toll on early-flowerers, but it hasn’t stopped tulips from putting on a stunning show.
May is the month when things hot up – both temperature wise (hopefully) and work wise. So much to do and so little time to do it ....
If this spring has been an example of global warming, then roll on the next ice age because it will be hard pressed to produce as much snow as some parts of Yorkshire have seen in the last few months.
Gardening doesn’t come much better than this – a bit of expert advice, some decent food and perhaps even a night away from it all.
Many years ago, I read of a shrub whose flowers smell of lily of the valley and whose berries can be made into jam.
Phillip Nelson, the head gardener at the stunningly beautiful Parcevall Hall Gardens in North Yorkshire knows all about weeding. It’s his pet hate.
