We carried on trimming the Wisteria along the wall behind the Library, and Julie offered to do some gentle weeding – but she pulled up rather more than she’d bargained for and nearly fell over backwards in her efforts to pull out these enormous roots of Alkanet!
Meanwhile, the Nottages busied themselves on the Ramparts: weeding, and dead-heading the Veronica to encourage a second flush of flowers.
We were delighted to see fruit appearing on the Quince! You’ll find it trained along the wall near the Library.
The Teasels are doing well this year and are standing proud by the entrance to the Library – which has recently opened its doors again since the Covid lockdown.
