play the game

IN gardens all over England, we can imagine the sound of bat and ball as young boys and girls get to grips with the pull, hook, drive and sweep, the nuances of leg and off spin and the genuine thrill of bowling fast. On village greens, residents turn out for local teams, indulging themselves in the languid forms of amateur cricket under the baking sun, basking in the traditions of a game that’s been around longer than almost any other. It may be a far cry from a few Sundays ago at Lord’s, when England breathlessly lifted the World Cup to the roars of 30,000 spectators. The polite applause of the score-keeping vicar may seem a world away from the limb-flaying carnage of the final, but cricket, from its village greens…

Apples and pears NEXT summer, the RHS will open its fifth garden, RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford, and is appealing to the public for help in securing the final £4.8 million required. Plans for the 154-acre plot are grand and include the first mother orchard in the North-West, securing the future of numerous apple, pear, plum, cherry and damson varieties. There will be 37 heritage-apple cultivars, for example, with trees from Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire and old Westmoreland. Varieties will include Florence Bennet, famously saved from a Liverpool rubbish heap, Withington Fillbasket, Scarlet Tiffing and Manx Codlin. The existing pear trees at Bridgewater hadn’t been pruned for more than a century; these have had to be felled, but they’ll not go to waste—their timber will build a new summer house on the site and…

AFTER a weekend away, I was perplexed to see a scene of devastation on the lawn next to the stone paving that goes around the north side of the cottage. Soil and stones were strewn everywhere. As I stared at the large gap in the turf, wondering what had happened, a bumblebee flew out and I understood. The badger is the mortal enemy of bumblebees and loves nothing more than digging out and eating their nests full of larvae and food stores. Clearly, there had been an attempted assault in my garden, but the badger couldn’t raise the paving stones and, to my delight, the queen and her cohorts survived the siege. Their buzzing around the alliums and lavender is the perfect soundtrack to a lazy summer’s day. Bumblebees have an amazing…
