Topbird - you must visit Kiftsgate - it is beautiful, in a frothy sort of way (whereas Hidcote is much more controlled) .......I enjoyed them both (probably Kiftsgate more), and wonderful to have such a contrast on the same day. You might also get to see the eponymous rose in flower .....it covers about 6 huge trees......Enjoy
Yvie too - have a wonderful garden visit in Kent and Sussex. You are visiting some gems. If you find time on the way home (you'll need room in the boot) then seek out Marchants nursery - best selection of plants I've ever come across, plus a lovely display garden to boot.
Today is summer pots day. I've also started using the Secret Garden Club - great plants and amazing prices ....so have some lythrum and some campanula to get in the ground.
