Lockdown Gardens: Readers show off their hard work
PUBLISHED: 16:30 04 June 2020
Today’s Lockdown Garden gallery showcases the commitment of Suffolk’s gardeners to their labours of love.
Gardening is an excellent way to stay active mentally and physically, whether at home or on an allotment, but it is also a test of patience – a test today’s gardeners have passed with flying colours.
Fred and Helen Brabner sent in a photo of their extensive plant collection, with greenery spilling out of terracotta pots and hanging baskets, filling a corner of their garden with an eclectic mix of flora.
John Garrad showed us the fruits of his labour – a hand-built raised bed now filled with the leaves of root vegetables waiting to be picked.
The climbing plants weaving around the window of Lesley Krohn’s home have grown over the years to form a beautiful flowering arch.
And the rainbow in the photo may be serendipitous, but readers can imagine the hours of work that Jackie and Allan Cole put into maintaining their perfect lawn.
