Unseasonable Weather Brings Growth Spurt To Gardens

The Curator of Tresco Abbey Gardens says this year’s unseasonable weather might have been bad for visitors, but the rain and warmth has been fantastic for the garden.

Mike Nelhams says the garden is overflowing with growth when normally at this time of the year, it would start to look a bit brown and parched.

Mike says the plants look very much like they would in late spring but there’s a downside. He says they’re likely to be spending much of the winter cutting back the plants.
