It took a huge amount of raking out - all in the baking heat which followed the soaking wet Spring. The lack of rain also prevented the seeds from germinating and the pigeons from the surrounding farmland had a field-day gobbling up our precious seeds!
However eventually it rained and the grass and wild flowers are starting to grow at last - much to the chagrin of the pigeons.
John and Craig also started planting water lilies and other plants taken from our well-established wildlife pond back where we live. Plus adding rocks and other features so in the end the edges of the pond will not look rigid and straight.
Finally you may be interested to learn that one of John’s other (many) talents is painting and designing – inspired by nature such as this beautiful area of wild flowers already growing near the factory’s main entrance.
Over the years John has created a range of over twenty or more stunning tea towels designs we call our Countryside Collection Range.
This range already sells really well all over the UK and Europe to our wholesale customers. But we are also planning to launch the tea towels in our own on-line shop very shortly so these beautiful designs will be readily available to a wider public.
Plus we will also feature the Countryside Collection tea towels in our existing eBay shop where we currently sell our fabric face masks.
