The session with our gardener Tracy may have been cancelled, but we couldn’t resist getting out in the glorious sunshine yesterday to give the Marylebone growing space some love!

We fed our planters with some new compost, got our nursery ready to go and planted some brand new chillis and rocket. We already have some beetroot and chard growing happily away and we can’t wait to get our hands dirty and our bellies fed as the growing season gets going.
