Charingworth Court NGS Opening 2023

8 05 2023

We can’t wait to open the garden for the 12th time later this month. But gardening since the snow of last December when we had days of temperatures around -9C has been more a case of removing dead plants.

We have lost hebes and montanas that were over 20 years old. Most of our large euphorbias have died and many other plants look less than happy. But as with all things in the gardening world, the daffodils and tulips have been magnificent, the wallflowers glow red and orange and the dahlias that we left in the ground have mostly survived. That has astounded us, especially as we have bought new ones too!
