  • Estate boundary hedges.

    Rosemoor Garden on 26 Aug 2009 at 04:03 PM

    We estate people don’t mess around when it comes to cutting the estate boundary hedges; we could use an electric hedge trimmer but the extension cable wouldn’t be long enough; we could use a 2 stroke trimmer but we would be there all year
    So instead we hire contractors to do the job.

    Meadow care 1

    Here at Rosemoor we always try to garden with Wildlife in mind. To this end, the garden staff have gradually been extending the areas of grass given over to wild flower meadow. These areas are a haven for wildlife and have the added advantage of being beautiful informal swathes of colour and interest from spring through to late summer, much appreciated by our visitors

    We have started summer pruning of our apples and pears which have been trained as cordons, fans and espaliers. These are called restricted forms as opposed to the normal orchard trees grown as a bush or half-standard, which are normally pruned in the winter.


  • “And So Say All Of Us!” (Part 2)

    Following on from my first blog “For They Are Jolly Good Vollies” I would like to introduce you to more of our volunteers within Lady Anne’s Garden.

    As I said before, whilst working in the garden, visitors often ask me how we manage to keep Rosemoor to such a high standard and so I tell them that we rely on the help of many volunteers throughout the whole garden all year round


  • Summer maintenance in the Long Borders

    Rosemoor Garden on 03 Aug 2009 at 04:11 PM

    The Long Borders at Rosemoor have been looking very colourful over the past couple of months, with good displays from the shrub roses, lupins, delphiniums, day lilies and Siberian irises, to name but a few plants.  In order to maintain the momentum of interest in the borders so that they continue to look attractive until late summer/early autumn, we have recently been spending some time carrying out various maintenance tasks in the borders.
