Lovely photos, thank you all. Want that blue clematis!

I went to the Keukenhof gardens when I was 14 years old, still remember it well, impressive.

I was wondering about starting a new thread about gardens we have visited and then Blackest said something about putting places on his map so here you are. If you visit any lovely gardens this year what about putting a photo on this thread? If you haven't been anywhere but went somewhere nice last year then send a photo of that. I love looking a gardens - nosy as well!

I'll start with Sissinghurst where we went in April, but, apart from the woodland bit, there wasn't much out yet.

Berberis, as everyone says, and this is a pic of a kerria japonica so you can see what it's like.

This thread is disappearing down the pages and I like it so here's another pic of my garden. Alliums are coming out, bit of a gloomy day!

I didn't know they did self-catering, we went in 2011 for the garden. This is their website

This was one of my favourite private ones, think it was called "Hidden Valley".

Well done to both of you. 3rd's pretty good isn't it? - especially overall.

That garden looks lovely Salino. We didn't know about it when we went to Cornwall 2 years ago, but we went to Heligan and the Eden project.

I have polycarbonate because I have horses in a stony paddock next door and they gallop about. But it doesn't look as nice as glass. Half of mine is dug bed which I grow tomatoes in, but I change the soil from time to time and add compost and rotted manure when planting. In spring I put trestles with planks on as a temporary table for putting my baby plants on, then when they go in the cold frames to harden off I remove the tables and plant the indoor tomatoes. The other side of the central path has permanent staging and a potting bench.

I've never tried it, I 've heard you can grow squashes under sweetcorn. Brassicas don't mind a bit of shade. Give it a go and let us know!
