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.
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
