We are back at work now after our break over the Christmas period. It is good to pick up where we left off and get stuck back in to our projects, designs and planning.
Some of the jobs we will be doing this month in the gardens that we look after include training and winter pruning wisteria, climbing roses, fruit trees and bushes.
We are a third of the way through winter now and so far it has been an easy time weather-wise. Memories of the snow and cold of March last year are still fresh in our minds, so we are well aware that spring is potentially a long way off. For the time being though, it is good to see the first bulbs flowering, and hellebores and other winter flowers giving us some colour.
