In the vegetable garden we planted the first of our Broad Beans and continued to supply our local greengrocer, Bramley's Apple, with a regular supply of rhubarb and purple sprouting broccoli. Both of which are can be purchased direct from the gardeners, just come and find one of us or if we’re hiding somewhere contact Tim, who can get hold of us.
Paul managed to get a first cut in the the parkland and in the cider orchard. The mound at the top of the cider orchard was also leveled, harrowed and sown with a wildflower mix that will hopefully benefit the bees and other wildlife that is starting to thrive. He also marked out two rows in the parkland which will be turned into a wildflower corridor, leading down to the lake.
The weed, feed and moss-killer has worked its way into the lawns and they’ve all started to green and thicken up nicely.

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.
