Glasshouse & Fresh Produce
Last year’s big project was to establish our traditional wood and glass greenhouse, surrounded by raised vegetable beds.
As we progress, we hope to see our guests helping themselves to the fruit, vegetables and herbs during their stay.
We plan to identify what’s ready to harvest.
The taste of fresh produce is second to none, so we hope you’ll enjoy.
Invitation to ‘Open Garden’ and future plans
From November 2016 sees Blackwood Park Cottages being invited to open the gardens as part of the regional ‘Open Garden’ event, joining Wychwood, Old Wesleydale and Marakoopa Caves.
After just three years since starting on the gardens this is a great privilege. We know we have a long way to go but appreciate the recognition of what Belinda is building.
Another challenge we have is trying to design and implement a year-round source of food for our bees.
Whilst bees are less active in the colder months they still feed so we’re choosing our plants carefully to ensure year-round source of nutrition for ourselves and our bees.
