Something for the weekend.......enjoying gardens and flowers.

Keep Sunday 23rd June free!

Guilden Morden, South Cambridgeshire is opening 12 gardens to the public from 1pm to 5pm. It's the first time we've done so for years. There's everything from a latge market garden (source of most Christmas trees in the village) to a courtyard based on a Geoff Hamilton design, semi urban and large cottage gardens. Two were designed by Chelssea gold award winners, the others by local enthusiasts!

The Congregational Church has mobilised all its members to provide on tea

We're really easy to access, 15 mins from the A1. Find us by typing this postcode into your SatNav SG8 0JD.

Plants still in flower?

Our plum tomato started flowering again in mid October and we picked 6 moderate sized, but quite green tomatoes last week (30 Nov) just before a frost killed the final plant. All our roses are still going flowering well, next to the more seasonal and deliciously fragrant sarccocca.

Today, Sunday 11th Dec, we saw wallflowers, lupins, delphiniums, penstemons and achilleas  all flowering at Wimpole Hall gardens (National Trust, South Cambridgeshire) forming a colourful but unseasonal back drop for a brass band playing Christmas carols!

But for us, the strangest is the yellow border in nearby fields of rapeseed flowering, having self set after the summer harvest...
