Today, Nut plus friend, Dove plus partner and myself went to Castor Gardens near Peterborough. I believe it is about 6 acres, with a large wood with mature trees.
Here are some pics
The first flower bed, with masses of flowers (I think they have their NGS opening now as so many of their flowers are at their best)
I have always been slightly repelled by Echinaceas, but have recently changed my mind
A nice sedum(?) with dark leaves and there is a bee there somewhere
This looks like a strange version of Nectoscordium
They seem to love intense colour here
A glimpse of the veg and fruit
Definitely greenhouse envy
I love the elegance of their fruit and veg area
Ahh, the Ornamental Gourds
...growing in this lovely airy gazebo
which Nut wants!
