Walled Garden - Growing

Walled Garden - Growing

The construction of the Entranceway continues (and is looking wonderful) but what about the planting?

 

30.11.2015

The physical build of the Pavilion, Entranceway and other structures in Walled Garden are just the beginning!

It was always the intention to wait (we know this is difficult sometimes!) until the construction works were complete before planning the planting.  We decided very early on not to spend time working out a detailed planting plan just to find we had to amend it because of changes during the building works. Nearly everyone we have spoken to about the project agrees that this is a wise decision!

It has taken a lot of hard work to attract the necessary funding to complete the construction works. In addition to managing the project there has been a lot of time spent raising the funds to complete the work. We are extremely pleased, that with the Friends of the Museum, we have been able to achieve this.

Our current challenge is to raise funds to plant the Walled Garden and complete the 'soft landscaping'. The Garden will have a range of planting that will provide inspiration, enjoyment and provide learning opportunties. Once the planting is established (which is always at the mercy of the weather and we are due a cold winter!) we will be able to welcome visitors into the Walled Garden.

The photograph shows the 'open space' lawn area in the south west corner of the Garden which has been looked after by our wonderful Garden volunteers.
