2019 – CHW
The Robinia slavinii ‘Hillieri’ shattered in the wind and rain. We saw this earlier in the summer in this diary and commented that a collapse was near.
Head Gardener Jaimie has been keeping up with the daily diary while I have been away in the north.
Echium seedlings coming up in the gravel drive after the rain – a few potted up before we have to spray off the Castle Drive.
The new machine has done a nice job cutting the banks outside the front door for the second time this summer. The machine mulches the grass which saves raking it up.
2015 – CHWBack from Yorkshire to find the house unrecognizable and full of film kit but 72 emails have to come first. Just a quick trip out to find Wisteria ‘Black Dragon’ still has a single flower on it above the gents’ loo. Very late for any wisteria let alone a double flowered form.
