The First Shallots

Jonathan Taylor, Deputy Head Gardener is laying out  the first of the shallots ready for planting in the new produce area in the Holkham Walled Garden. The pathways between the produce beds have now been laid out, levelled and low brick edges cemented in. The final layer of gravel will be raked over the paths later. Jonathan was working out exactly how many hundreds of shallots he had planted and intends to leave a border for some inventive companion planting. The shallots will be used in the cafe and restaurants on the Holkham estate and offered for sale to staff and visitors.
