A Virtual Tour of Nantybedd Garden -Part One
This weekend should have seen our annual opening for the National Garden Scheme, but the COVID-19 has put a firm end to that, so this week and next we are posting a series of images on Instagram and Facebook to help you to get your ‘fix’ of our lovely garden.
We are following the route that Sue takes in her Candide Gardening audio tour, and today we reach day 5.
We do hope you enjoy these pictures and will come – maybe again – to visit us when we can open. At this point in time it is all so uncertain that we can’t even say whether we will be open at all this year.
The woodyard, which as visitors will recall is the start of the Nantybedd tour, our meet and greet place.
and we move into Sue’s little domain – the potting shed – the hub of all that happens in the garden – or Home as Sue calls it!
We move back outside to yet another key factor in our gardening ethos – compost. You may have been on one of Sue’s Compost Making workshops or seen our earlier published video (which has been used by the National Garden Scheme) on making the perfect compost. If you haven’t then it’s a potential Oscar winner!
Through the gate into the potager, home of flowers and vegetables, and wonderful hazel support frames.
Venturing through the runner bean tunnel, we come to our tree carving Cedric, who symbolises our approach to editing nature, not dominating it.
There’s more to come. We’ll be publishing some more early next week – keep watching.
