He sent me these progress photos on Friday from the Walled Garden. Veg of the month, Jerusalem artichokes, are fab for making winter root veg soups. Try with parsnip & masses of ginger, with bread from Swifts bakery (sold in Apley Farm Shop).

New for this year, after early evening tours of the Walled Garden, we’re just finalising menus for picnic suppers to enjoy in the garden itself – a totally magical place to be on a summer’s evening.

The Telford Centre Rotary Club are organising a Gardeners’ Question Time (which will be compered by the BBC’s Paul Shuttleworth) on Friday 19 May. Click HERE to buy your tickets.
