Normanby Hall again

One of the best things at Normanby Hall (see yesterday's post) is the walled kitchen garden.  Vegetable growing methods of about 1890 are used and heritage varieties grown.  It's a big old walled garden of about an acre with huge glass houses. 

They have fantastic trained fruit

and beautiful vegetables.

There's companion planting to attract beneficial insects.   (Spot the butterfly!)
  And beautiful pots for forcing rhubarb

All in all a fantastic place to visit and be inspired by.
