John and Linda have created a temporary vegetable garden in the walled garden at Dalmore. It's not a huge area and it's full of perennial plants like geraniums and phlox, but the soil is lovely.

They've cleared about a third of it and have planted potatoes, runner beans, peas and French beans. We might use the area for soft fruit in future years because it will be quite easy to net.

There's lots of manure by the five acre field and some containers of leaf mould in the wood, so we'll give the soil a good topdressing in the autumn.

We also have early potatoes and courgettes in pots and tomatoes, cucumber and salad in the greenhouse.
