A beautiful gift that you will want to keep.

Ideal to post, the calendar folds to 300 x 300mm and is stapled at the fold.

Hand from the hole ready punched at the top and once open the calendar measures to 300 x 600 mm.

 

This stunning design created by local Devon artist, Isla Middleton, has an organic look and feel with a rich palette of colours using eco inks that have been printed on 100% light grey, recycled paper.

We love the tactile feel of the calendar as well as the textured paper that has been created using reclaimed fibre.

 

A true masterpiece, this delightful calendar has been created by textile designer Isla Middleton as her celebration of the very best of garden produce.  Complete with full page original hand carved linocut prints each month offers a beautiful image depicting our favourite fruit and vegetables to relish at their peak and as the seasons unfold.

Not only is this is a wonderful record of the gardening year for experienced growers and allotment holders, it will also be a treasured gift for anyone embarking on creating a vegetable patch  for the first time.  Gazing at these abundant images, nobody can fail to to be inspired to grow from seed and learn the pleasure from harvesting fresh produce from their plot.

Turn the page for each month and discover practical growing advice written by the talented Bryony Middleton, Head Gardener at Sharpham Trust in Devon, who organically manages the 19th Century Walled Vegetable Kitchen Garden.  She has included her gardening tips to help organise the productive year ahead beginning with sowing seeds through to harvest.  We LOVE the growing chart that is included on the last pages of the calendar.
