Tree Felling

Whilst the hotel is closed for renovations we are taking the opportunity to make a lot of noise in the garden, including some tree felling.  Jon, the forester who has been working on the larger Gravetye estate for the last couple of years, has begun some large clearance projects which will open up neglected parts of the garden and help some of the more special trees to flourish.  98 more words


Meadow cutting

Plant of the Week

Liquidambar Styraciflua
This is one of the most beautiful trees on the estate and I think it must be a particularly special seedling. Its’ one of the first trees to turn colour and keeps its beautiful red leaves almost up until Christmas. 32 more words


Plant of the Week

Succisa pratensis, also known as devil’s-bit scabious

This is a rather rare wildflower which we are fortunate to have in abundance on the estate at Gravetye. 66 more words
