I would check their website for opening times, which are erratic.

Didnt mean you had many mistakes we all have our funny ways of doing things and think it is the right way and someone else might think it is wrong. Did that make sense? if it didnt very sorry not having a good week .

-after you have posted and you notice a mistake you can correct it by going to the bottom right hand corner of your posting- a blue icon will appear click on that- it goes back to your message and you can make changes

It only works providing yours is the last message -if someone posts after you can't edit

Hope that explains it?

@ keiths lemon  - here's a pic which I took at the wildside about 6 years ago, much more established now, but it gives you a bit of a feel for it. It's been started from scratch by a husband and wife team - he's Keith Wiley who used to be Head Gardener at the Garden House which is just down the road from the Wildside. Myself and a few of my friends adore it, and go over at least twice a year, Keith's always working in it and pottering around, it is so difficult to describe but, with the possible exception of Great Dixter (the late great Christopher Lloyd's garden), the most inspiring and magical  gard


en I've ever been to.

Figrat, that's my idea of a garden too. Love those grasses

It is amazing. But this is only ( literally) a snapshot. Every time I go I'm just bowled over.
