Around the Orchard all sorts of plants are starting to flower. One of them is the cowslip – ours were grown originally by a couple of young volunteers, Ava and Hollie Lynas. There are also a lot of different types of flower thriving in our alpine garden.
The pear, damson and plum trees are in flower, although the cold winds we’ve been having have been preventing the bees getting out to pollinate them.
Finally, we need a bit of help. You might have seen that one of the new additions to our Orchard is… a dinosaur! While he’s one of the few allowed out and about during lockdown, one thing our Jurassic colleague needs is a name.
Send us your best name suggestion on Facebook or drop us an email, and we’ll choose the winner at the end of the month.
