The bridge going over the railway line on the A614 just past California gardens which is the road to the coast is now open.  Also, the planned roadworks in front of California Gardens along the A614 have now finished.  You can access California Gardens on the new tarmac surface with ease.  We hope to see you soon.  

 

Evergreen value

Evergreen perennials are fantastic value in the garden: big, handsome Euphorbia robbiae, bergenia and hellebores offer greenery right through winter as well as flowers and often a flush of burgundy colour to the leaves in autumn. Now is the time to give them a quick tidy-up, though: remove flowered stems right to ground level and take off any old or tattered leaves to keep them looking smart.
