Getting ready for our first #Beekeeping workshop tomorrow - Louise set up the hive a few days ago, at least 4 miles from where they normally reside so they don't go back home! All the equipment is ready. Now just to prep food

Great day today with a fab bunch of ladies - we sowed and sowed! Took cuttings, sowed a wilflower border, broadcast marigolds and went through staking. Busy day and we had a very nice lunch - Heston Blumenthal's Quiche, with celeriac rémoulade, lentil and haloumi salad and Mary Berry's chocolate fondant tart!

Yesterday I finished the booklet for the Cutting Garden Workshop this Saturday - printing it now.

These are notes for people to take away and also recommendation of where they can get products, seeds, plants, etc... this time there is ....
Otter Farm for plants that are unusual, seeds, Higgledy Gardenfor seeds, Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants for amzing plants and just up the road from me in Hampshire, for bulbs aplenty! There is also de Jager for bulbs and great advice too,Reads Nursery for plants and fruit trees and where I got my lemon grass fromm plus white strawberries. Check them out they are all excellent suppliers. (Not paid to say this - but have or am buying from them).
