Last week our Crafty team made a thoughtful ‘Miss You’ card for the local convenience shop who have sadly had to close. They provided us with milk over the years, so our team wanted to say their goodbyes by presenting them with their kind gesture.

Our Crafty team have had a ‘cracking’ time lately making their very own Easter eggs, using balloons and papier mache. They can’t wait to decorate and show them off in their Easter window display once they’re all dry and ready to go. We are sure the finished products are going to be amazing!

It’s been another busy week at The Walled Garden with the team preparing for spring! They’ve been working together to build a raised bed in their Polly tunnel, with a plan to grow an early salad crop. We look forward to seeing the rewards of all of the team’s hard work over the next few months.

The team recently received a request from a customer for a table that can be used in their greenhouse. We are sure you will agree that Les and Ulrich have done an amazing job and we hope the lovely customers love it just as much as us! Here is Ulrich adding the finishing touches with a coat of wood stain.
