 Hoping for a lot of plums
Currants, rasps, marjoram, wild flowers...there's some potatoes behind there
 I may regret taking in an Angelica plant, but the seed heads are beautiful


Lesley Robb

Culbokie. Lesley's pond was made in August 2018 as one of the Grow North workshops and has changed somewhat over the last two years. The solar panels work a small waterfall for a couple of hours a day.

We have lots of willow, important early food for bees
We planted a lot of trees, many fruit and nut.  A small plum in front of large gean (wild cherry)
Garlic, can’t have too much garlic
We do love flowers and mix native ones in where we can
The luxury of a polytunnel means overwintering salads and early seed propagation
Veg beds with some overwintered kales, new carrots with fleece
