This week in Airfield Estate we learnt how to pot on plant cuttings, the difference between espalier and fan training, how to deal with spring bulbs and making suitable compost for container pots. I highly recommend this course with Airfield. Colm O’Driscoll, head gardener at Airfield, is a fountain of knowledge and we learnt so much over the past few weeks.
It has been great to see how the garden has changed so much from March to May and I look forward to visiting with my camera over the next few months. For me the walled garden at Airfield is my favourite space and I think Letitia and Naomi Overend (philanthropic owners of Airfield estate who set up their charitable trust in 1974) would be pleased to see how their garden has grown!
Spurred on by all things green, I am pleased to report my seedlings have germinated and are still growing – time will tell if they make it outside and surive!
