Hello and Welcome
Hello and welcome to my brand new blog about the gardens here at Mottisfont, I will endeavour to update this page at least once a week and keep you posted on developments in the garden.
It feels like it's been a long and hard winter in the garden this year, probably because we didn't have much of a summer last year, but winter is nearly behind us and spring is just round the corner. I love this time of year as the garden is filled with so much promise of what is about to come, you start to see daffodils in flower everywhere and a whole variety of spring bulbs pushing up through the soil.
The big job that has occupied us over te past 8 weeks or so has been rose pruning, it's quite a task here with the numbers of roses running into the thousands. We are nearly at the end now and the team have done a fantastic job, especially when you consider that the work must go on despite the terrible weather if we are to finish in time.
