HELLO FORKERS!

WW, or do you prefer Woody, when I water pots I don't use the sprinkly thing either, doesn't give a good enough soak, but I find just the end of the hose is too forceful as my hoses have Gardena joining things on them, so I put the end of the hosepipe into a watering can without a rose and water from the can pulling the hose pipe with me.

The house sitter didn't water the roses in pots enough and they have suffered a bit.

We wanted to see a garden near Worcester last week, but it had closed to the public 5 years ago although it was still on Google. So we thought we'd go to Spetchley Park, but it was Monday and the garden was closed.  Went and wandered round Tewkesbury instead.

We went to a garden called Hergest Croft which had some interesting and rare trees. The rhodies and azaleas were over. There was a big kitchen garden, but it was a bit strange as, instead of putting the herbaceous borders and rose garden near the house they were some way away in the kitchen garden.

 When we were in Shrewsbury we saw the garden that Percy Thrower created in the public park.

Morning all. I'm earlier than usual as OH has gone to meet his BIL and 2nd wife (OH's sister died) from the airport.

Looks like being a lovely day.

Thanks, Chicky. Drat the rain!

Hever is quite pricey, but you see the castle as well and it's a big place. We got half price with the 2 for 1 GW ticket.

Just going to be a bore and post this thread again as it was the last post on the page before, in case anyone was interested. WW saw it though.

WW, I think Great Dixter and Waterperry are my 2 favourites too.

We have just returned to France having been on holiday in the West of England. I put the photos of David Austin's rose garden on the rose thread, but I'll add some more here.

Hever Castle in Kent.
