Garden Tips for Stormy Weather

June 7th 2017 On the 22nd February 2017, just prior to Storm Doris battering the UK, we wrote a blog post which aimed to give some advice to gardeners during a period of predicted bad weather! Little did we know that we can now refer to this post in June as it still holds relevance! What is up with this recent weather!? It was just this morning that I fulfilled my morning dog walking ritual which takes place at the Forfar Loch every morning, and to my surprise the place appeared as though a tornado had struck...

A Trip into the Archive

With the The Chelsea Flower show in just a matter of weeks, we have spent some time in recent weeks getting all nostalgic, scanning our archive looking for inspiration from the past.

The city of Dundee had been importing jute to manufacture twine, canvass and hessian sacking and the industry was booming. The city had been experiencing rapid expansion in the 100 years prior, and was commonly...
