  • Working notes of an RHS Fruit and Veg Gardener

    Rosemoor Garden on 19 Dec 2008 at 02:06 PM


    We’ve had a very good harvest despite the weather this summer. I actually think they liked the extra rain.


  • Hedge Laying at Rosemoor

    Rosemoor Garden on 19 Dec 2008 at 11:52 AM

    Throughout the garden we have a number of traditional Devon hedge banks that we have been maintaining by laying (or steeping as it is often called) over the past few years. At Rosemoor we wish to preserve and maintain the traditional hedges within the garden, as traditional natural hedgerows are sadly diminishing in number.


  • Bulb planting in Lady Anne’s Arboretum

    Rosemoor Garden on 18 Dec 2008 at 10:34 AM

    It was a cold, dark, damp morning as Lady Anne’s Garden’s team ventured into the garden, armed with tools and ready to meet the challenge: 0peration Bulb Planting...

    This task had been postponed for a number of weeks due to the excessively wet weather we’ve had of late. The clay soil in the Arboretum and meadow areas to be used for planting had become thoroughly saturated, and we had visions of 5,000 Camassia bulbs flooding down through the gully that joins the two halves of the garden with the next rainfall! (Well, this is Devon after all and only slightly exaggerated in the precipitation department, I might add)


  • News from the Fruit & Vegetable Garden

    Rosemoor Garden on 18 Dec 2008 at 10:13 AM

    We have been making some improvements to the fabric of the fruit & veg garden.

    The shelter has had a bit of a face lift with the stone floor cleaned and enlarged, the thatch given a good scrape to remove layers of moss and a new ridge-cap put on, by our local thatcher


  • Birches scrub up nicely in the Winter Garden

    Rosemoor Garden on 16 Dec 2008 at 11:48 AM

    The many wonderful plants in the Winter Garden are beginning to take centre stage and we have been busy tidying up the borders so that they look at their best over the coming months.  


  • New Plantings at Rosemoor

    Rosemoor Garden on 12 Dec 2008 at 12:05 PM

    We constantly seek to expand the plant collections throughout Rosemoor. A large proportion of what we plant comes from in-house propagation in our nursery, but there is always new material carefully chosen to ensure that there is something different to be seen by our visitors.  Stock is also obtained from a wide range of sources, principally by purchasing from nurseries, but also by growing seed donated from botanic gardens around the world, and by the old-fashioned method of scrounging and swapping with other gardens and gardeners.


  • Rosemoor's famous Chocolate and Beetroot cake!

    Rosemoor Garden on 08 Dec 2008 at 01:28 PM

    Since we held our Family Fun Day in the summer, where we demonstrated some of the more interesting ways you can use vegetables in cooking, we have had a number of requests for the recipe of the scrumptious Chocolate and Beetroot cake. So, here it is... Enjoy!

  • What's Going on at Lady Anne's?

    Rosemoor Garden on 05 Dec 2008 at 11:51 AM

    At Lady Anne's Garden, the original part of Rosemoor, we’ve grabbed a window in the weather to spike our somewhat “sticky” lawns. Here’s our “young” trainee Mike getting to grips with aeration using our Groundsman. It’s a heavy machine, so not always possible to use without causing a mess.
