View from above

Well, this is the view over the walled gardens from the top of the conservatory. The ropy old polytunnel finally went last week. The central path is beginning to take shape; the orange netting protects the bit we are still allowed to garden. The trees you can just see in the distance are on the other side of the A4. The one by the right-hand wall was left by mistake and will be going soon. The work in the conservatory itself looks grand with all the old ironwork removed, fixed and now being replaced. All the rotting timbers beneath are being immaculately restored.

Kitchen Garden on CBeebies Friday 20th March

Last year Jelly the frog, a big star from CBeebies, came to help some of the kids planting peas and potatoes in the Kitchen Garden. Now the Green Balloon club will be airing the episode, so set your videos (or whatever hi-tec recording thing you have…) for CBeebies, 4pm on Friday 20th March, repeated on Sunday at 9am and 3pm. It was a very long day’s filming for the brilliant kids, and will doubtless make a fabulous two minutes’ of great kids’ TV.
