In the Garden
We are still exploring options for the Fishpond, if you have any ideas please let us know.
We will plant the red begonias this year in the courtyard and around the grounds and hope the deer when migrating to Redhill will bypass Tulk.
Vegetable patch available should anyone want to grow vegetables. At the moment we have planted plug plants and as soon as they are big enough we will transplant them.
Gooseberry and rubarb and potatoes, plus chives and sage and can be picked by all.
In the rockery there is a large rosemary plant. Just take a walk round and collect herbs.
The new Japenese blossom tree has rooted well and has blossom.
Robbie Sampson has offered to show us how to trim the Mexican Bean tree on the front lawn so it doesn't take over
The gardeners have started cutting the hedges back and they will continue over the next couple of weeks. Ground Floor residents if you do not want your hedge cut please let Sandy know
