As the Coronovirus pandemic has changed many aspects of life over the past many months, the gardens and green spaces all across the UK have continued in full glory over the spring - but Summer has arrived and for many the outdoors is the sanctuary from the continued uncertainty of what lies ahead. Head Gardeners Saul and Lucy have still been full at work at Stonelands and Easy Donyland (as well as their own gardens) and continue to share their lives as professional horticulturists, there tips and tricks and their observations of their gardening lives.
Although the pandemic can be seen in a general negative light, there are some rays of positivity that have occurred, especially with the increased amount of time people have had to enjoy their environment and especially get stuck into some gardening. A lot of new and developing gardeners have emerged and Saul and Lucy hope that our industry can nurture many of these to take a permanent interest in their outside space. So in today's podcast we have a good discussion on the approach of media, horticulture groups and notable garden institutions should be taking to achieve realistic education for these fledgling horticulturists.
