The little thatched hut would be ideal for a private picnic with a bottle of something nice. There are a lot of crocosmias just starting to flower,big clumps of aconitums in full flower, and heliopsis in different varieties at six foot tall.
A big bed full of blowsy penstemons caught my eye. Gypsophila bristol fairy looked ideal for flower arrangers. A blue limonium looked superficially like a blue version of the gypsophila.
I think a repeat visit in August , on a sunny day with a picnic is a possibility.
The very tall columnar conifer is a rare variety planted in memory of Robert Bloom, who was killed in a car accident.
I didnt buy any plants in the garden centre. Standard wyevale stuff. Now if they'd had any of the plants I had just seen, it would have been a different story.
