    The dry settled weather has given us the ideal opportunity to plant out our wild flower plugs grown from seed sown on the nursery last year.

    Here at Rosemoor we have a variety of boxes to encourage wildlife into the garden and surrounding woodland. These include boxes for dormice and owls. Whilst the dormouse boxes can only be touched by those licensed to do so, the owl boxes can be maintained by the staff here.

    Now is the time to plant onion sets. The earlier you can get them into ground the bigger the crop


  • Appledore Primary School visit Rosemoor for some Weaving and Dyeing

    Rosemoor Garden on 19 Mar 2009 at 12:52 PM

    At Rosemoor, we have welcomed school visits since 1993, and now teach thousands of schoolchildren every year about the amazing world of plants. Last week, Appledore Primary School visited to learn about weaving and dyeing with plants.

    First of all they looked at the stem of a cotton plant, to see the fluffy white cotton bolls which hide the lumpy seeds inside. We looked at the fibres from flax, soya bean, nettle, hemp, bamboo, mulberry bark, coir, jute, seagrass and sisal. Some of them have been used for centuries, others are much more recent


  • Young Bird Photographers!

    Over half term we launched a Children's Photographic Competition as part of our 'Birds in the Garden' half term week. We asked children to capture our feathered friends in the garden, at Rosemoor or when they were out and about.

    We received so many fantastic photographs, and we have really enjoyed looking at them here at Rosemoor. Judging the winners was a tough job


  • Update on our 3m x 3m veg plot

    Rosemoor Garden on 06 Mar 2009 at 02:44 PM

    Our 3m x 3m veg. plot has come through surprisingly well from what was - for us - quite a hard winter, with long periods of sub zero temperatures (down to -11c at its coldest), and then several days under snow.

    The plot is presently occupied with a green manure crop (on one half) and a selection of oriental greens on the other. Both were sown last September and established well, and despite the fact that the greens have had no protection, they have provided a steady crop of leaves (to add to a mixed salad or lightly steam)
