We have had quite a bad time over the last year, not all to do with the Covid situation, although most of our helpers are of a certain age and therefore have needed to shield either for themselves or for their nearest and dearest. The fact we were told not to go outside unless really necessary., made life very difficult for us.
Our other main problem has been the very cold wet winter we have had. Our little pansies and primroses do not like prolonged cold wet weather and although we have replanted twice in some areas we have still lost a lot of plants. We are now in the process of reviewing out winter plants for next winter time.
