A Garden Worth Sharing…
Welcome to the first blog post from the Tullie House gardening team.
We are a small group of volunteers who meet every week (except during the Winter) in the beautiful surroundings of the Tullie House gardens.
Our task is to carry out regular work that ensures the gardens continue to be a place enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Call us the Tullie Gardens Team.
Tullie House garden is a pleasant courtyard style garden set within the historic heart of the city of Carlisle, close to the central shopping area. The garden is situated within the grounds of the historic Jacobean House, and is laid out in a style to reflect the era.
For those unfamiliar with Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, it houses considerable collections of fine and decorative art, human history and natural sciences.
Over the next few months we will be informing you of what we have in our garden and what takes place, not only at the hands of the gardeners, but also the many events that are enjoyed by young and old throughout the year.
We are a committed team, but even we admit that we have a mixed range of plant knowledge within the group, maybe you can help us identify some of the plants and flowers? Your comments and advice will be greatly appreciated.
Part of the garden is an attractive, open space designed with a Jacobean style theme. We also have a Roman garden which was planted to show visitors the main types of plant that would have been around in the Roman times. There are now plenty of signs of Summer coming to the garden.
Although we intend to keep future blogs simple, we hope we can be informative and make as many new friends as possible along the way, so if you do see us in the gardens working away, please pop over and say ‘hello’.
