Autumn in the Garden -2014

Throughout autumn we have been busy preparing the garden for spring.

We have been busy moving soil from inside the glass greenhouse for crop rotation.

In Greenhouse 3 we are making raised beds and ramps.

Lots of tarmac and rubble alongside greenhouse 3 has been removed by our hardy workers throughout the cold weather! In its place a new bed 25m long has been created where we hope to plant fruit bushes and crops.  Along our east facing wall we have also been busy moving boulders and preparing the ground for our cordon apple and pear trees.

The Fruit bushes were moved from a north facing wall to a sunnier position. In its place we have started to create a fernery in a stumpery.

Tons of manure has been dug from the RDA centre and brought to the garden in preparation for spring time.
