Phil Allen, Head Gardener of Apley Walled Garden, will be on Gardeners’ Question Time on BBC Radio Shropshire again today Sunday, 15 November 12-1pm with Paul Shuttleworth. In the gardens themselves, he’s growing to order more than ever before – currently for our own Apley Farm Shop & Creamery Cafe of course, as well as 2 local restaurants & our local university. Whilst Phil had a fabulous display of Christmas veg for our Christmas Launch yesterday at Apley Farm Shop, I spent an hour in the Walled Garden (whilst the girls rode their ponies round the park), catching up & taking these photos to continue our ‘progress story’.
