Work is currently in progress to improve Peppercorn Place. We have already replaced the two large beds with four separate smaller raised beds, made with railway sleepers,  which will give easier access  to mid-bed for those tending them.  Two of the beds  are one sleeper high, the other two are three sleepers high. Work is currently being done to clear debris (including a tree that came down in the bad weather) and cut back nettles, brambles and some of the shrubs.  We have saved the roses and some other plants for re-use.  There will be a herb garden plus edible flowers in one of the higher beds and we will grow beans and sweet peas and other produce and flowers in the lower beds. 

We  had hoped to re-launch the garden with an event around Eastertide but sadly the bad weather in December, February and in mid-March has caused delays. We are now planning the re-launch for mid-May so keep an eye open for info!
