An occasional (depending on how busy I am gardening!) comment on beautiful plants or moments as they happen in our garden.

Red Cross Opening August 28th

By roses382, Aug 19 2017 08:23PM

We will be opening for the last time this summer, on August 28th, Bank Holiday Monday, 2-5pm. Adults £3.50, children free. It will be in aid of the Red Cross, who are providing Tea and Cakes.

We don't normally open this late in the summer, so it is a chance to see the garden in a different season. Dahlias abound (the one pictured below is 'American Dawn'), and there is plenty of colour in the form of annuals, Salvias and grasses, Persicarias, Hydrangeas and Japanese Anemones. And the Pumpkin Patch is a sight to behold! There will also be Plants for Sale, propagated here in the garden.

So, fingers crossed for some late summer sunshine. Do come along if you can.
