Tatton garden build progress

Everything is moving on quickly as the Tatton Show date grows closer.

The build starts July 7th with the show opening to the public on Wednesday 23rd July (RHS judging is 22nd July).

Ken has had many of his students helping with the plant sowing, growing and especially the potting on as the plant material is doing really well in the venlo.

All the rebar trees have now been completed by the Engineering Department. They look fantastic and will provide a real WOW factor for the garden.

We have encountered difficulties sourcing the aeroponic towers as they are largely manufactured in the USA at the moment. However, Chris and Ken have come up with a DIY solution that will work, look great and save some budget on importing them!

Anife and Carol made the very long trip down to visit Barchams Trees in Cambridge.  The trip was to reserve some beautiful trees for the edible forest space. The trip was successful and we now have some top notch specimens reserved.

In the coming days we will be working on the edible table, the seating, the chicken coup and of course managing all the precious plant material.

A massive sincere thank you to all those that have helped in any way towards the Tatton Project so far. Your help has been invaluable and much appreciated.
