I must say the garden is looking absolutely super at the moment.
Last year was our first full season at Pottery House, and we where somewhat disapointed with our progress in the garden.
We've come to the conclusion that this was a combination of two things, a very poor summer (not much we could do about that) and very poor soil. To help the soil we spent a lot of effort manuring sections of the garden last autumn, and it appears to have paid off.
We already have a glut of lettuce and it wont be long before the broad beans are ready.
And the flower and shrub beds are looking lovely.
