It’s been international week at Birkheads this week we’ve had visitors from America, Canada, Asia and  Europe as well as our valued regular local visitors. It’s been interesting finding out how visitors deal with their specific ‘problem areas’ The lady from Canada has to lift her roses for the winter, wrap them in sacking and store them in the basement until spring. Oh to be in England, where we never know what season its going to be day to day! Our gardens look so good becase of it… two days sunshine, one day rain, more sun = very green gardens. The wildflower meadow is the exception the grass is pink ( Festuca rubra ) The oriental poppies and peony roses are exploding throughout the garden.
