NGS Opening Saturday/Sunday May 20th/21st 11am to 5.30pm

The garden has been soaking up the longed for rain in the last few days and we have been planting up pots, weeding and edge trimming in preparation for our opening.

Many plants are early and others have suffered from a couple of late hard frosts so the wisteria will be mostly over but the water iris will be open this year and a few roses are already in bloom.  You win with something every year despite the inevitable losses!

The exiting part is the arrival of the sculpture and we enjoy watching the hard work that goes into curating the exhibition!  There are already some beautiful pieces in the garden which we get to enjoy.

One of the wow factors of the garden is coming round the path and seeing the pond.  It still takes my breath away some days.  And although I love the views across the garden from various points, for me the best images are the glimpses of individual plants from unexpected points.  Above you can see self sown aquilegias, candelabra polyanthus, the layered viburnum mariessi, white osteospurnums and poppy heads just ready to burst into spectacular pale pink beauty.

The garden is a real mixture of careful planting and nature self sowing.  With flowers like the welsh poppies we have learnt to love what nature gives us!

Come and see for yourself.
