The last of the spring bulbs are fading and the summer ones are replacing them. There are thousands of Camassia in flower, both in the garden and the nursery , and the borders are filling with alliums.
The peony collection is at its glorious best, with the species, single flowered , spectacular in the nursery and the double cultivars soon to start in the parterre. P. rockii has surpassed itself this year with 9 huge flowers.
Soon the iris collection will start to flower and the roses will begin their display.
We are still working on our new S African display bed to house a collection of Agapanthus, kniphofias, gladiolus, nerines, eucomis etc etc. but the replanted rock garden is settling well with hundred of self sown Tulip sprengeri.
Do call in and help a very worthy cause. We have now broken the £5k mark!! Thank you so much!
We are open every weekday 9-4pm £2.50 donation each for St Margaret’s (Somerset) Hospice.
