As you enter LEAF from the main road, through the old green painted iron gate, down the steps, you can’t help but notice to your left, a blaze, a riot of color and as you breathe in deeply, you can’t help but notice the sweet fragrance of lavander assault your nostrils.

This is because the top four-most beds as you walk down the path with the old wooden-stake fence have been planted, not only with autumn and spring garlic and onions, but on their ends nearest the fence have been planted with Sweet William and Lavender.

Close up, they look like this:-

Dark Sweet William

Dark Sweet William

Abolutely gorgeous to behold.

Red Sweet William

Red Sweet William

In about six or seven different colours.

So, the total effect is something like this:-

All Sweet Wiilams
All Sweet Williams

So, apart from the blue bins in the background, you’ll agree they’re pretty good to be greeted by.

Just a few of the many, many reasons why we love working down at LEAF!
