‘The Mad Month of May.’

March is usually considered to be the ‘mad’ month of the year. Here at Brimfields.com, May qualifies due to so many ‘events’ taking place.

This weekend the Hanley Open Gardens takes place over the three days of the bank holiday weekend. Our Garden@19 will be open on the Sunday and Monday. (Spit and polish between the showers).

The following weekend is the RHS Malvern Spring Show  described on their website as “Set against the magnificent Malvern Hills, our spring festival is packed with flowers, food, crafts and family fun.” A good introduction to the ‘Gardening’ content can be found here on the Chatty Gardener Blog   We will be there, one day, helping on the National Garden Scheme  (NGS) stand.

Winchcombe Gardening Club have invited me to give a presentation to them on the 16th, this is my sixth visit, they either enjoyed the talks or are trying to get their monies worth!

The following Saturday our gardening club, The Black Pear Gardening Club, is holding a Gardener’s Market, there is also a Worcestershire HPS meeting that afternoon which I would like to attend, timing will be tight!

The last weekend in May is another Bank Holiday and friends of ours are opening their garden in Worcester, for the NGS on two days, where we will be helping with teas and plant sales.

(Plant propagation has been an on going process for some time, preparing for the garden openings sales table).

June is a much quieter month, we only have our NGS opening to organise on the 9th and 10th June. (More spit and polish). It all adds up to make life interesting!

What is keeping you ‘active’ in May?

  1. May is actually late in the season horticulturally, but just prior to June, when things get very (extremely) busy for us. Our gardens are at a conference center and campgrounds. The conference center gets busier, and the campgrounds will be going full time! We have had moderate traffic for months, but will soon need to plan our work around events and the activities of the children at camp. The landscapes are not as vast as one might think, but we must maintain the natural setting that visitors are so impressed by. It involves cutting down trees that become unsafe and keeping vegetation from overwhelming the facilities and trails. It is fun work, but much of the work is staying out of the way.
