Apley Walled Garden in the heat wave

Garden to Kitchen direct: Lettuces ready to go to Creamery Cafe

Uncomfortably hot ! 39 deg

Tomatoes growing well in the polytunnel

Garden to Shop direct: Phil’s first 2017 cucumbers heading to Apley Farm Shop

Appropriately on midsummer’s day, take a look at the thermometer reading in Apley Walled Garden. It’s always a few degrees hotter inside the walls, which is very welcome in mid winter of course. Head Gardener Phil Allen said it’s the hottest temperature that he has ever so far recorded in the garden.
