The June explosion is with us, and Simon and Kathy are keen to share their garden with beautiful displays of roses, early buddlejas and mock orange. The very special intersectional peonies are in bloom along with several lovely herbaceous ones as well, so too a with a mass of alliums and poppies, iris, love in the mist and dames violet. The garden should look really special for Father’s Day and beyond, Kathy is demonstrating the art of kokedama (moss balls) if requested. Additionally, delightful tea and home made cakes are available to purchase. For the moment, her wonderful rose petal cake is back on the menu.
