The summer explosion continues and Simon and Kathy are keen to share their garden with vibrant displays of echinaceas, cosmos, phlox and dahlias. The late flowering clematis (over 50) are looking wonderful; so many colours draping the arches and obelisks. The ornamental grass gardens are now at their best with the echinaceas, blue geraniums, and tall verbena weaving their magic alongside the rippling grasses. The graceful nodding flowers of white acidanthera provide a visual feat around the formal fishpond.
The orchard fruit are beginning to ripen and the Orchard workshop with apple pressing, tastings and talk of cider vinegar is to take place on September 16th 2-5pm.
Kathy will be holding free chats about bulbs in the grassland, borders and pots on open days in September. There will be bulbs for sale.
