Our Head Gardeners have been busy building mini beasts, creating new flower and vegetable beds and maintaining our Gardens.

They always try to showcase a range of crops, from fruits and vegetables to cereals and flowers, many of which we use in our Riverside Café.

Here’s a few summer tips to help keep the garden in tip top condition – what to do now!

  • Dead heading to promote further flowers
  • Take relevant for cuttings for propagation
  • Sow spring cabbages – oriental greens
  • Remove lower tomatoes leaves to help ripen
  • Keep picking your crops

What’s looking good now in our garden

  • Tomatoes – 12 varieties including several heritage – have you seen our black tomatoes
  • Large non edible Oregano, which are attracting lots of bees and butterflies!
  • Flower of the year – Zinnia in our small cut flower bed
