2017 Opening for National Gardens Scheme – 22nd, 23rd & 30th July

The garden is open over 2 weekends in 2017 – Sat & Sun 22nd & 23rd July as well as Sun 30th July. 11.00 am – 5 pm. £4 admission, children free. Plants for sale and teas. Also group openings by appointment for the NGS during June and July. This year, Hole’s Meadow will be showing over 500 alliums interplanted within this Plant Heritage National Collection® of Nepeta based on the site. In addition, a prairie style garden area started in 2016 and extended this year will be ready, albeit not yet mature. This area was designed around the planting out of many of this Plant Heritage National Collection® of Monarda, also based here, as well as including many other wildlife friendly plants in the design. The herb garden area has also been consolidated and partially moved. A new orange and blue/ purple border is also just being created to showcase the use of nepeta as border edging plants. The Monarda Collection is also maintained within pots in the garden in order to ensure its survival. Advertisements
