We are undertaking a big programme of renovation in the LOW GARDEN & this will be ongoing throughout the year. We have nearly finished work on our new path in the sprial garden and the new stone steps at the top of the garden will be finished by early summer.
'RHS AWARD OF GARDEN OF MERIT' for the Famous Himalayan Blue Poppy:
Dalemain was delighted to announce in 2014 that the meconopsis Dalemain was awarded an ‘RHS Award of Garden Merit’ for the famous Himalayan Blue Poppy (meconopsis Dalemain) after extensive trials at the RHS.
Gardening Team's Tip of the Month
Catch weeds before they get a hold eg. bittercress before it seeds.
Mulch (if not already done).
Still plenty of time to sow seeds - succession sewing for prolonged flowering period.
Service mowers (if not already done).
Trim lawn edges to make you feel good.
Pot up dahlias and plant seed potatoes at Easter, to get chitting.
We look forward to seeing you in the Garden!
