GREAT COMP Friday Sept 25th and Monday 21 Sept
The garden is looking so good at this time of year, it really is Salvia heaven. This is a video of our day trip .
Hall Place visit, Sept 9th
We had a lovely relaxing day at Hall Place, it has been maintained very well considering lockdown issues. This “tropical” display near the main entrance was particularly colourful, with cannas, castor oil plants, dahlias and sunflowers. The topiary “beasts” looked very smart and the long borders were interesting for ideas as they were laid out by colour. After a picnic lunch, visiting the small but very good quality plant centre finished off an excellent day.
OUR 2019 VISITS:
Monday 30th September: Anna led a walk around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on a slightly grey but thankfully dry autumnal day. Our small group had a great time meandering around the park. The planting is very natural-looking with some wonderful pops of colour from red-hot pokers and Eucomis. Definitely worth another visit at a different season.
Chenies Manor 15th July – fantastic plant fair, so many stalls, so much to buy! A wonderful old house too, well worth a visit anytime. See gallery page for more.
RHS WISLEY 10th May – a great visit, SO many Alliums! – see gallery pages for more photos
