The Definitive Guide to Stain Removal

Definitive Guide to Stain Removal

While people adore the recipes and the page layout in the Dairy Diary, one of the most well-thumbed features in the book is the stain removal guide.

It may not be the most exciting page, but it’s certainly one of the most useful!

Here we have created a downloadable
DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO STAIN REMOVAL
print-out for you, so that you always
have it to hand.

Stick it inside the cupboard where you keep your laundry equipment for useful reference.

Top 8 Colourful Gardens to Visit

Top Gardens to Visit

Colourful Gardens to Visit

The nights and mornings are getting lighter at last and it’s getting a little bit warmer. So now’s the time to think about venturing out, and enjoy what the UK has to offer.

This year’s edition of the Dairy Diary has a feature on colour in our gardens and also includes this list of stunning gardens to visit.

Gardens to Visit

The white garden at Sissinghurst, Kent

Hidcote, in Gloucestershire, famed for its twin red borders

The winter gardens at Dunham Massey, Cheshire

Great Dixter in East Sussex, for unusual colour schemes

Beth Chatto Gardens, Essex, for garden artistry

The herbaceous border at Arley Hall, Cheshire

Harlow Carr, the RHS garden in Yorkshire, pushing the boundaries of design and planting styles

Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland, described as a ‘theme park for gardeners’

Check opening times and facilities before visiting.

 

I can personally recommend Hidcote, which is just gorgeous, and Dunham Massey, which is at its best at this time of year.

You could forego the expensive afternoon tea on offer and instead take with you a flask and some scrummy melting moments.
