***** IT'S HAPPENING LADS!! IT'S REALLY HAPPENING ***** WE ARE ABSOLUTELY BUZZING ABOUT REOPENING. ROLL ON MONDAY 12TH APRIL. To all of the lovely people who have been calling and messaging - Thank You. It gave us a warm glow. We're excited, you're excited. Brilliant. But... between now and April there is a lot of work to be done. The Garden has been ravaged by frost, and the poor old thing is looking terribly forlorn. We will be lavishing love on the old dear by the bucket load between now and April. Whilst behind the scenes work is in motion
