January Gardening Update at Birtley

With a let up in the relentless rain of late, we have managed to finally get on with a few things in the garden. A large section of ‘dead hedge’ was laid from the brash left over from the ongoing coppicing in the woodland, the larger branches and logs being set aside for charcoal and sale as firewood. Some of the vegetable garden beds benefited from their annual mulch of well rotted stable manure, and the old, bindweed infested raspberry beds that have been left fallow for 2 years are being dug over and realigned with the existing beds in the vegetable garden. These will be the new home for some of the cut flowers we grow here at Birtley.
