    Update

    Finally it rained and with more forecast this week the gardens are returning to their green selves and starting to grow again.The bees have been loving the lavender which has thrived this summer and we’ve started harvesting the heavy cropping autumn raspberries and blackberries.

    The espalier pears are forming well and the annuals have thrived in the heat and sunshine for either cut flowers or an edible addition for salads!

    Tuesday afternoons at Oaklands Park Community Garden have now started again for the summer and Wednesday and Saturday morning sessions in the Bishop’s Palace Vegetable Garden continue throughout the year, so do come along as we’d love to see you.
