Kate’s lockdown diary no 5

Welcome to the fifth in our series of video diaries from our Head Gardener Kate Robinson – where she shows us around the gardens of the Charterhouse, looking at the different planting schemes and including tips on planting and maintenance.

While we are in lockdown Kate is the only member of the gardening team on-site – but she’s getting help from some of the Brothers and more recently some of the volunteers too.

In this episode, she takes us on a tour of Charterhouse Square and its lovely meadow ribbon all around its edge – a big attraction for pollinators. She describes the great variety of grasses and flowers growing there, and the technique for creating a flourishing meadow area.
