Mike's Blog

When the Botanic Garden closed on 18th March 2020 because of the Covid pandemic, Head Gardener Mike Hughes took photos every day of things that caught his eye and wrote notes about them. He published his photos and notes in a 'blog' each day for 300 days until the garden opened up again on 11th January 2021. There is an article about Mike's blog on the BBC News website.

Now Mike is continuing his blog, publishing it as and when interesting things develop in the garden. All Mike's past blogs can be accessed below.
