Gardening work during June 2022

This is what we did in the Storey Gardens during June 2022:

  • We continued the work of removing the mound of soil and rubble in the Copper Beech Garden. This is the mound by the steps coming up from the Storey.  Not much left.  When this is complete we can move the Plants for Sale to this area.
  • Weeding along the edges of the paths in order to show better the shape of the paths.  This is an ongoing task.
  • Weeding and mulching the earth rings around the fruit trees.  All the trees have now been weeded and mulched this year.  Also weeded and mulched the espalier apple trees growing against the Georgian wall.
  • Clearing brushwood from around one of the sycamore trees.
  • Weeding the flower beds.
  • Harvesting the bumper cherry crop on the large cherry tree at the top of The Tasting Garden.  Click here to view a separate post about this.
  • Thinning the fruit on the apple and pear trees.  Click here to view a separate post about this.
