Plant of the Month : July 2016

Planters and Baskets

Our Gardeners have been hard at work planting out exotic plants that have over-wintered in our greenhouse, such as cacti, bananas, palms and cannas, creating a feel of warmer climes in the Cotswolds. Look out for the hanging baskets (photo) and planters in the Reptile Courtyard, which are now establishing for summer.

We aim to keep our extensive range of planters and baskets going until after the October half term (frost permitting). To achieve this we incorporate a controlled release fertiliser into the compost, and the hanging baskets have a simple auto-irrigation system.
