Tending a garden is a true labour of love, and no one knows that better than Mike Nelhams, Curator of the magnificent Abbey Gardens in Tresco. His Cornish hideaway is a true plant-lover’s paradise, where over 3,000 species can be admired – many of which are exotic. The idyllic isle of Tresco has no cars, spectacular beaches and ancient castles, making it the perfect destination for a short British break.
Mike recently shared with us his tips for keeping your garden in tip-top condition on a month-by-month basis, and we’d love to pass his expert knowledge on to you just in time for spring. So, without further ado, here is the first in a series of expert garden tips, created for you by Mike himself!
