Greetings one and all! It is with a heavy heart that I must now bring this blog to a close. I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to all of the good eggs who have read, commented or emailed along the way, you genuinely made it all worthwhile! My time at Hidcote is now over; the dream is dead. The three years I spent there were amongst the best of my life and I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to share some of the glory with you through this blog! I’m now employed at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew where I’m undertaking the Kew Diploma, another three year training course that essentially amounts to a degree in horticulture (please see here for more information). So, I now bid you my warmest and most cordial cheerio! Please click here for more of my Wodehousian horticultural adventures, as I make an attempt to rekindle the dream, phoenix-like, from the ashes.
