Meet Netherby Hall's Head Gardener, Lorraine Pearson

Lorraine joined the Netherby Hall team in November 2022 and has settled in straight away. With lots of knowledge, Lorraine has implemented changes already including our new 'no-dig' policy. 

Walled Garden in Summer

A vision for a traditional garden employing modern solutions

The new glasshouses are Victorian replicas, but with biomass heating linked to an electronic climate control system, with heated beds and benches for the all year- round production of micro veg and other salad crops. Other produce that requires warmth, such as tomatoes, aubergines and peppers are grown in season. Grape vines are to be trained underneath the glasshouse roof and peaches, apricots and nectarines are being espaliered against the walls.

A Reflection of the Changing Seasons

Varieties of fruit and vegetables are chosen to suit menus which change throughout the year, giving a genuine reflection of the changing seasons. The garden is managed using natural techniques with organic fertilizers and pest control based on minimal pesticide use, employing rotational cropping as an essential practice.
