Another month of 2011 has finished and I have completed five visits, volunteering in the grounds and Walled Garden here at Wallington. It was not exactly a 'flaming June', with the weather being changeable on all of my visits. The rain was so bad on some occasions, that I had to shelter in the house or under the trees depending on where I was working.
The gardening team and other volunteers have continued to replant the borders in the Walled Garden and around the house. To me, this year, the flowers of spring did not seem to last as long as they usually do? The continued hard work at this stunning property ensures that there is continual colour and always something for the visitors to see. As we are have moved into mid summer there will be a wide variety of plants to be seen at their best.
