As the garden closes for another season the heavy winter work can start in earnest. 

The first job was to fell the poorly beech tree in the main car park.

From here, we move on to re-designing the rose garden, moving beds and plants as well as laurel hegdge pruning and the general autumn tidy up!

The garden will now go through its process of "going to sleep" for the winter, refreshed and ready for spring 2014.
