Blossom Picnics – Hanami Day

Spend the day under the blossom trees in our heritage orchards for our version of Japanese Hanami tradition of enjoying the beauty of the flowers.

 

A picnic in the Gardens is always enjoyable, however, the orchards in bloom provide the perfect setting to your relaxing day out. Traditional Japanese food by Pika Pika will be available on the day, with a selection of delicious sushi and curry available.

Take part in learning how to create beautiful origami creations too.

Potatoes planted…

A good day for planting potatoes… Lots of ‘growing kits’ given away.

Make sure you share your results with us #castlebromichhallgardens #wegrowtogether. I wonder who will be able to harvest the most from our one potato.

We were giving away ‘rocket’ seed potatoes, so they shold be ready in a couple of months.

Thanks to all the lovely young peple who helped plant up one of our 4 potato beds. We have now added “swift” and “foremost” to our ‘earlies’ beds. All the Highland Burgundy Red, shetland Blacks and Salad Blues are now in and we’ll be putting the very special Congo  and Yamm varieties in next week.

Can’t wait till they harvest? Well come back for our community cob and pizza oven making days on 18th and 19th April
