National Gardening Week 2015 13 – 19 April

In National Gardening Week I’ve had a week of garden related activities.
Rainbow Allotment
The community allotment is coming along well but it will be full steam ahead from now on.

Judging for Yorkshire in Bloom

It is both a privilege and a pleasure to judge gardens, parks, schools and allotments for Yorkshire in Bloom.  I have just completed spring judging in towns on the East Yorkshire coast and feel humbled by the hard work and dedication shown by the volunteers.
Gardening Club
It was our mini Spring Show this week along with a presentation on plants for the conservatory by professional gardener Gordon Kirby.

So, as you can see, I’ve had a full week of gardening yet not had time to tend my own garden – but there’s still tomorrow!
