Apley Walled Garden – March news

Tomatoes in peach house

First of the Tomatoes planted out in peach house today. Another half dozen varieties also sown today.

I just found this Apley Walled Garden news from back in March, stuck in my drafts folder. I felt it’s still worth sharing as it forms part of the timeline of the garden throughout the year.

Thursday 23 March: First of the Tomatoes planted out in peach house today. Another half dozen varieties also sown today.

Head Gardener Phil Allen has begun his own Facebook page with great photos & films – take a look by clicking HERE.

Tues 28 March: Plum blossom is out & kale seeds are germinating. The mice got all Phil’s bean seeds though 😦

Read this article here from A Calendar of Gardeners’ Lore (Revealing the Secrets of the Kitchen Garden by Susan Campbell) about ice was made for ice houses (Apley Park had one).

    Harriet,
    I take it you know where the Apley Ice house is? Have you been down inside it? I thought it quite impressive when I went down in it as a child.
    Gerald.
