UK Gardens



Well, I finally made it! After all these long years of waiting, my hubby and I were able to take a nice eleven day trip to the UK in June.


It was wonderful in so many ways, but, certainly, the gardens rose to the top for me. Walking first into Barnsley was like walking into my own dream, though in many ways it is a very real and imperfect garden.

The same was true of Hidcote, Sissinghurst and Great Dixter. The latter, however, is the garden out of the old favorites that glows even more brightly precisely because of its imperfection.

Two favorite new gardens were the David Austin Rose garden at their nursery in Shropshire, and Wollerton Old Hall in Market Drayton.

 I'll be digesting more of our garden visits for a while on my Instagram at WMGardener.

Thanks for reading!
Hope you are having a lovely gardening season,
Julie

  1. Also be aware when planting bushes or trees because there could be an area that is kind of like a dead zone. Also make sure when it comes to fruits, your tropical fruit stay on the beach and everything else on grass. (Tress could also be too close together or too close to a waterbank).
    Finally when it comes paths here we hired a gardening service http://junkandgardening.co.uk/
