This was the Mulberry tearoom border on a quick visit to Bateman’s on the way home from Ticehurst yesterday.”If you can get to the Mulberry tearoom in time and see the border you have cracked it!” said the woman in reception and she was right.

The border is in full bloom at the moment and a great example of how to mix flowers and vegetables, which admittedly on a much smaller scale is something I am trying to do myself at home.

Small groups of sweetcorn, artichokes, runner beans growing up natural willow and giant onions, in between huge clumps of crosima, poppies and many other flowers that I hope to look up in the future.

Rudyard Kipling’s house at Bateman’s is well worth a visit too, we didn’t do it yesterday but his library and his desk are magical.
