24 Sep Autumn Blues (and other colours)
We’ve been busy tidying up the gardens after the wet stormy weather in preparation for our final open gardens day of the year – Sunday 7th October is the date for your diaries when the gardens and the tearooms will be open for business from 10 until 4pm.
We have planted a huge number of Dahlias in the long border this year so there is some real colour to look forward to. A whole medley of reds, oranges and pinks with no apologies for clashing colours!
The grasses in the Walled Garden of Hare Hall are looking as good as we’ve seen them and the verbena bonariensis we planted a couple of years ago has self-seeded to great effect.
We have had a bumper crop of quinces so help yourself to a few from the stack we will have in the Kitchen Garden near the tearooms.
The roses are coming back strongly, if a little wind-swept, after a difficult year in which they have frankly struggled with the extreme weather.
We very much hope you manage a final visit this year but if not, next stop will be snowdrops next February when we will be open for several weeks through to the daffodils.
Dogs are welcome, on leads please, unlike the two in the photo!
